Two Members of the Law Library Faculty Recognized With Prestigious AALL Awards
The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) has recognized the scholarship of two members of the Law Library faculty with prestigious awards.
Professor Vicente Garces, reference administration and web services librarian, received the Joseph P. Andrews Legal Literature Award for his work as a co-author of the book Celebrating Diversity: A Legacy of Minority Leadership in the American Association of Law Libraries (2nd edition). This award recognizes a significant piece of scholarship that contributes to the body of legal literature and to advancing legal research and law librarianship.
Professor Andrew Martineau, instructional services librarian, received the AALL/LEXISNEXIS Call of Papers Award for his article, “Reinforcing the ‘Crumbling Infrastructure for Legal Research’ through Court-Provided Metadata.” This competitive award recognizes significant scholarship relevant to legal bibliography and the profession of law librarianship. Martineau will present his paper at a special session of the 2019 AALL Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.
“I am very pleased,” says Joan Howland, Roger Noreen Professor of Law and Director of the Law Library, “that Vicente and Andrew have been recognized by AALL for their scholarly contributions to the study of legal information systems and the advancement of law librarianship.”
