Wrap Up Your Research While Avoiding “Fake News”

One of thnewse ways to check your sources in our wild and vast information landscape is through noting which sources have garnered professional peer acclaim, whether within the academy or among professionals. Your Georgetown Law Library colleagues, who have created the multidisciplinary research guide A Brief History of Civil Rights in the United States (as announced in a previous post), are proud to announce that it is the winner of the 2017 Publications Award, Nonprint Division, of the American Association of Law Libraries, our professional association. Congratulations to the authors: reference librarians Heather Casey, Kristina Alayan, Rachel Jorgensen, and Barbara Monroe.
