Congratulations, Sally!  I am proud to announce that The American Association of Law Libraries will be awarding Sarah (Sally) G. Holterhoff the Marian Gould Gallagher Distinguished Service Award — AALL’s highest honor. Sally is associate professor of law librarianship and government information/reference librarian at the Valparaiso University Law School Library.  The Gallagher Award acknowledges those individuals who have sustained service to law librarianship, exemplary association support, and outstanding professional literature contributions.

Sally has not only dedicated her life to our profession, but has also been an active member of CALL and AALL and an advocate on government information issues.  She is a past AALL president and served two terms as an AALL Executive Board member.
