Nominations for AALL's Public Access to Government Award Due Feb. 1
The AALL Government Relations Committee invites members to nominate an individual, organization or institution for the Public Access to Government Information (PAGI) Award. The Association presents the award annually to recognize special efforts in promoting or preserving public access to government information.
Last year, two winners were acknowledged. Cathy Hartman of the University of North Texas was recognized for the government documents web site, including the Cyber Cemetery, which preserves the web sites of defunct federal agencies, boards and commissions. John Joergensen of Rutgers University Law School Library was honored for his creation of the Rutgers-Camden Law School Library Digital Project that made thousands of Congressional hearings and committee prints freely available on the web.
The committee received a record-breaking number of nominations last year and picking the winners was especially difficult. Please help make our work even more difficult this year by nominating a great public access pioneer or project that you know about!
