AUSTIN, Texas—The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) has chosen The Jamail Center for Legal Research at The University of Texas at Austin as a winner in its 2000 Law Library Publications Awards competition.
The awards for both the print and nonprint categories recognize achievement in creating in-house library materials that are outstanding in both quality and significance.
The Jamail Center for Legal Research Annual Report, 1997-1998 received the Law Library Publications Award for printed publications. It was edited by Keith Ann Stiverson, deputy law librarian, and Tobe Liebert, director of public services. Adrienne Diehr of the Library Director’s Office produced the layout and design.
The Jamail Center’s Website, located at www.law.utexas.edu, won the Law Library Publications Award for nonprint publications. The site was completely redesigned in 1999 by June Liebert, electronic resources librarian. The new website features easy-to-use navigational tools, guides for conducting legal research, links to useful resources around the world and special pages for students, faculty and visitors.
“These awards from AALL reflect the efforts and contributions of all the Jamail Center’s staff,” said Roy M. Mersky, the William Stamps Farish Professor of Law and director of the Jamail Center. Mersky will accept the awards at the AALL’s annual meeting in Philadelphia on July 17.
