Joy Hanson, Reference Librarian at the Duke University School of Law Library, was the inaugural recipient of the ALL-SIS CONELL Grant. The award presentation took place at the ALL-SIS reception on Tuesday, July 19, at St. Mary's Law School.
This grant program was established in order to provide a newer academic law librarian with the opportunity to attend the AALL Conference of Newer Law Librarians, and benefit from the networking and service opportunities that CONELL provides.
Ms. Hanson is a 2004 graduate of the Indiana University School of Library & Information Science - Bloomington. Since assuming her job at Duke Law Library in June 2004, Ms. Hanson has already become active in the profession, with service on the AALL Citation Formats Committee, the SEAALL Placement Committee and the Duke Libraries' Professional Affairs Committee.
The 2005 ALL-SIS Awards committee consisted of James Milles (SUNY-Buffalo), Sally Wambold (University of Richmond), and George Pike, Chair (University of Pittsburgh).
