I am a bit surprised that no one has posted the news on Slaw that Ted Tjaden received the Denis Marshall Memorial Award for Excellence in Law Librarianship at the Canadian Law Libraries Association annual meeting on Monday. A description of the award can be found on the CALL website.
I assume that in due course the Association will be posting some sort of testimonial to Ted on their website along with pictures of the award presentation, but I‘m quite certain that Slaw readers will want to send their congratulations to Ted as well. We are certainly proud to have Ted as one of Irwin Law’s authors and look forward to the third edition of his Legal Research and Writing text which will be published later this month.
I might also mention that CALL presented a new award to Helen Rentis in recognition of Helen’s long service to the legal information community. Helen will be known to many Slaw readers. She has been a force in Canadian legal publishing for many years, first as a sales rep for Butterworths and, for the last fifteen or so years, as an independent sales agent for legal publishers around the world including Irwin Law. Publishers and customers alike have benefitted from her incredible knowledge, her amazing attention to detail, and her unfailing good spirits. We are certainly proud to have Helen selling Irwin Law’s products but more importantly I am honoured to call her my friend. Well done Helen.
