The image below, designed by Alameda County Law Library staff member, Nicole Lemieux, has been selected for the 2015 Excellence in Marketing Award for Best Brochure by the American Association of Law Libraries. AALL (say “double A, double L” — it is just easier) was founded in 1906 to promote and enhance the value of law libraries to the legal and public communities, to foster the profession of law librarianship, and to provide leadership in the field of legal information.
The award will be presented to ACLL at AALL’s annual summer meeting in June.
The image does an incredible job with its text and graphic images in visually presenting the financial predicament in which California County Law Libraries currently find themselves. The cost of legal information continues to sharply rise while income from civil filing fees drops. Ouch.
