Associate Dean Joan Howland Wins AALL Legal Literature Award

The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) has named Joan Howland, associate dean for information and technology and Roger F. Noreen Professor of Law, as a 2021 recipient of its Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award.

Howland, along with co-editors Scott B. Pagel, director of the law library, associate dean for information services, and professor of law at the Jacob Burns Law Library at George Washington University, and Michelle M. Wu, retired associate dean for library services and professor of law at Georgetown University Law School, received the award for Academic Law Libraries Within the Changing Landscape of Legal Education: A Primer for Deans and Provosts.

Awarded annually, the Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award recognizes significant contributions to legal literature. Nominations are evaluated on their creative elements, and the extent to which originality and judgment factored into the work’s creation.

Academic Law Libraries Within the Changing Landscape of Legal Education: A Primer for Deans and Provosts examines the factors involved in an analysis of what a community needs from their library, and demonstrates why the answer to these questions might vary from library to library.
