Rare Book Room Brochure an Award-Winner
6/05/07--The brochure recently won for Best Print Publication from the American Association of Law Libraries.
The Law Library's Rare Book Room brochure recently won an award for Best Print Publication from the American Association of Law Libraries. The award honors achievement in creating library materials that are outstanding in quality and significance--this may include, but is not limited to, writing, compiling, editing, or designing print or non-print materials.
"We are so pleased that the American Association of Law Libraries selected the Daniel Coquillette Rare Book Room brochure for its best print publication award this year," said Associate Dean for Library and Computing Services Filippa Anzalone. "The gorgeously illustrated publication has ignited even more interest in the Boston College Law Librarys rare books program. We are delighted to be able to share information about our fine jewel of a collection with the legal academy and legal history scholars."
The Rare Book Room brochure was designed by Susan Callaghan of SMCDesign, and was written and edited by Karen Beck, Collection Development Librarian and Curator of Rare Books. The brochure is full color and includes many images of rare books from the Law Library's collection. It was funded by the Law School Fund.
The award will be distributed at the AALL Annual Meeting in July 2007, which takes place in New Orleans.
The American Association of Law Libraries was founded in 1906 to promote and enhance the value of law libraries to the legal and public communities, to foster the profession of law librarianship, and to provide leadership in the field of legal information.
Today, with over 5,000 members, the Association represents law librarians and related professionals who are affiliated with a wide range of institutions: law firms; law schools; corporate legal departments; courts; and local, state and federal government agencies.
