AALL New Product Award
Have you discovered any great new library products this past year? If so, let
us know! It is time to nominate these products for AALL’s New Product Award.
The New Product Award honors a new and innovative commercial legal information
product that enhances or improves existing law library services and/or
procedures. New products may include, but are not limited to, printed material,
computer hardware and/or software, or other products or devices that aid or
improve access to legal information, the legal research process, or procedures
for technical processing of library materials. Any product that has been
re-introduced in a new format or with substantial changes is also eligible. A
new product is one that has been in the library-related marketplace for two years
