The Joseph L. Andrews Bibliographical Award recognizes a significant textual contribution to legal literature. The textual work may be a book, pamphlet, periodical contribution, website, database, or publication in some other format. Nominations for the Andrews Award shall be measured by the creative, evaluative elements and the extent to which originality and judgment were factors in the formation of the work. The term 'legal literature' is meant to be broadly defined, and includes works that: 1) are bibliographical in nature, listing the works of a particular author, printer, or country, or a particular theme; or 2) contribute to the body of legal literature and that also contribute to advancing legal research or law librarianship.
To make a nomination for the Joseph L. Andrews Award, please fill out the Andrews Award Nomination form below. Electronic submission of nominations is encouraged; however, print submissions are also acceptable. It is not necessary to submit a copy of the work when making nominations; however, the Andrews Award Subcommittee may contact the nominator to request a copy for evaluation purposes if the work is not easily accessible. For nominations of electronic publications, please provide appropriate access information for the Awards Committee to gain access to the publicaiton, including URL, login, password (if necessary), etc. To be eligible for consideration the work must have been published or made accessible to users during the calendar year prior to the year for which it is being nominated for the Andrews Award. The Award is not limited to publications prepared by law librarians or AALL members. The Award is a plaque issued by the American Association of Law Libraries and presented during the AALL Annual Meeting.
