IALL 2009 Website Award Contest
The International Association of Law Libraries (IALL) is seeking nominations for its annual website award contest. Here is the announcement:
This is an opportunity to nominate your favourite legal information website. The winner will be announced at the 28th Annual Course in International Law Librarianship in Istanbul (Turkey), 11th - 15th October, 2009.
With this Award, the Association seeks to recognise and promote free legal information websites that are authoritative, comprehensive, up-to-date, useful, and user-friendly. The selection panel will make its decision based on these criteria. The websites nominated may be those designed specifically for researchers, information professionals or librarians, in a national or international context. Websites that have a connection to the members of the selection panel cannot be nominated. The Association also wishes to emphasise that selection is not restricted to English language websites; sites in all languages are welcome (check the previous winners of the Award).
The selection panel for the 2009 Award is Ligita Gjortlere (Riga Graduate School of Law), Xinh Luu (University of Virginia), Teresa Miguel (Yale Law School) and Mirela Roznovschi (New York University).
Please send (1) the names and web addresses of your recommended websites and (2) your comments by the closing date of 14 September 2009 via E-mail or mail to:
