AALL New Product Award

The New Product Award has transitioned from being a project of CRIV to being handled by its own jury. They have send around the following announcement asking for this year’s nominations.

Have you discovered a new product that you think is great? Nominate it for the AALL New Product Award! Nominations may be submitted by librarian users or vendors. The deadline is February 1, 2016.

This award honors new commercial information products that enhance or improve existing law library services or procedures or innovative products which improve access to legal information, the legal research process, or procedures for technical processing of library materials. A “new” product is one which has been in the library-related marketplace for two years or less. New products may include, but are not limited to, computer hardware and/or software, educational or bibliographic material, or other products or devices that aid or improve library workflow, research, or intellectual access. Products that have been reintroduced in a new format or with substantial changes are eligible.
