UW Law Library received a ‘Best Print Publication’ award from the American Association of Law Libraries for its book, “A Decade of University of Wisconsin Law Library READ Posters.”

Law Library staff published the award-winning book to commemorate ten years of its popular READ poster program. The book includes 17 READ posters, created annually since the library began the program in 2006. The READ posters—part of the Law Library’s National Library Week celebration—feature Law School faculty and staff holding books that have influenced their lives.

The annual AALL Awards recognize the achievements of law librarians for their service to the profession and contributions to legal literature and materials. Law Library staff will be acknowledged at a special luncheon during the annual AALL conference in Baltimore in July.

READ posters are on display throughout the Law Library. An online collection of the posters is also available.
