Law libraries recognize the importance of getting the word out about their services.
The AALL/West Excellence in Marketing Awards honor outstanding achievement in public relations activities by an individual, a group of individuals, a library, a Chapter, an SIS, a Consortium, a Caucus, or any other group affiliated with the Association.
AALL believes public relations is a critical responsibility of nearly every member of the library profession and they issue the Excellence in Marketing Awards to inspire, educate and encourage promotional activities by the AALL membership.
This year’s winner for Best Brochure was the Law Library of Congress in Washington D.C.
