Nancy Carol Carter, Director, University of San Diego Legal Research Center, has been awarded an AALL Call for Papers prize for her paper "American Indians and Law Libraries:  Acknowledging the Third Sovereign." In the paper, she argues that American Indian tribal governments constitute a third sovereign within the United States. A higher legal profile increases tribal contact with the federal and state systems, as well as with private citizens. Law librarians are urged to deepen their understanding of the third sovereign and to undertake the challenges of building library collections and creating organizational systems that best support legal research on American Indian and tribal law. Nancy will be presenting her paper at the AALL Annual Meeting in Minneapolis.
