Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award

Description

The Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature 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.

PROCESS

Eligibility

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.
