Each year, the Chicago Association of Law Libraries honors members who have made outstanding contributions to the organization and the profession of law librarianship. CALL members are encouraged to submit nominations for the following annual awards:
- The Agnes and Harvey Reid Award for Outstanding Contribution to Law Librarianship is presented annually at the May business meeting for outstanding service to the Chapter during the previous year or for contribution to law librarianship.
- The Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement in Law Librarianship is presented annually at the May business meeting to a retired or soon-to-be retired CALL member for their outstanding lifetime achievement in law librarianship.
- The Award for Outstanding In-House Publication is given to an individual or group who created in-house library materials (print or online) that are user- and staff-oriented, are relevant for law libraries, and are outstanding in quality.
Criteria for each award can be found on the CALL website.
In 2014, the Reid Award was given to Keith Ann Stiverson; the Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement was given to Eloise Vondruska and Julia Wentz; and the Award for Outstanding In-House Publication was given to the John Marshall Law School Library and the IIT Chicago-Kent Law Library. Nominate your deserving CALL colleagues to join these distinguished award recipients!
Please submit nominations for all three of these awards to Maribel Nash, Chair, CALL Grants & Chapter Awards Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 27, 2015.
