Int'l Association of Law Libraries 2006 Website Awards

I picked up this announcement on ServiceDoc Info, a "juriblog" written by Stéphane Cottin of the Constitutional Council in Paris.

The INT-LAW listserv made it known Monday that the competition for the International Association of Law Libraries (IALL) annual website award is now open.

The winner will be announced at the 25th Annual Course in International Law Librarianship in St Petersburg, Russia (10-14 September 2006).

"IALL wants to recognize valuable freely accessible legal information websites by this award. The Association would like to encourage the development of useful, authoritative, reliable, and user-friendly sites, that represent new thinking in the area . The selection panel will make its decision on this basis. The websites nominated may have either certain law library users in mind or may be websites that have us - 'professionals' in legal information retrieval in a national or international context - as a target group."

Websites in any language, from any jurisdiction, can be nominated.

The selection panel for this year's Award is composed of James Butler (Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia), Halvor Kongshavn (University of Bergen, Norway), LyonetteLouis-Jacques (University of Chicago) and Lisbeth Rasmussen (University of Copenhagen).

Anyone who wants to nominate a website is asked to send the name and URL, as well as an explanation of how the suggested site meets the IALL criteria, by the closing date of June 30, 2006 to:

James Butler
