AALL Awards Nominations
Joseph L. Andrews Bibliographical Award
The Joseph L. Andrews Bibliographical Award recognizes a significant contribution to legal bibliographical literature. The work may be a book, pamphlet, periodical contribution, or publication in some other form. A nominated work shall be measured by its creative, evaluative elements and the extent to which judgment was a factor in its formation. The term "legal bibliographical literature" is meant to be broadly defined and should not be limited by an author's use or nonuse of the term "bibliography" in the title of the work. To make a nomination for the Joseph L. Andrews Award, please provide as complete a description as possible; it is not necessary to submit a copy of the work. Only works published during the 1997 calendar year will be eligible for consideration. The Award is not limited to publications prepared by law librarians or AALL members. Please send nominations for this award to David Bachman, Co-chair, Andrews Award Subcommittee, Vanderbilt University Law Library, 204 Law School, Nashville TN 37203. The deadline for nominations is February 1, 1998.
