Proud to report that a book to which I contributed has been selected by the American Association of Law Libraries for its 2020 Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award.

Ellyssa Kroski, director of information technology and marketing at The New York Law Institute, won the award as author and editor for the book, Law Librarianship in the Age of AI, published by the American Library Association.

It was one of two books selected this year for the award, along with Business and Legal Aspects of Sports and Entertainment (BLASE), edited by Ed Edmonds, professor emeritus of law at Notre Dame Law School, and Frank G. Houdek, emeritus professor of law at Southern Illinois University School of Law, and  published by HeinOnline.

With chapters contributed by multiple authors, Law Librarianship in the Age of AI examines how artificial intelligence is changing the profession, including the benefits to various library working groups, the associated risks, how access to justice will improve with new natural language products, and ways that legal innovation will force the development of new library skill sets.

My contribution was the book’s final chapter, “The Future of AI in Law Libraries.” You can read my chapter below.
