Best Reference Site - 2004
The Wisconsin State Law Library website has won the 2004 Wisconsin Library Association "Webbie" award for Best Reference Site. The award was announced November 3, during the WLA annual conference in Lake Geneva. The WSLL website was one of nine nominees in the Best Reference Site category.
The WSLL website, launched in March 1999, provides access to Wisconsin, federal, tribal, and other states' online legal resources such as statutes, regulations and case law. It also includes an index of over 300 legal topics, each with links to relevant web resources and pertinent statutes and regulations. The library's catalog and monthly newsletter are available, as well as links to legal forms, law reviews, and a wide variety of directories and general reference tools. The website is designed and maintained by WSLL staff members Elaine Sharp, Technical Services Librarian, and Amy Crowder, Web Resources Librarian/Cataloger.
The WLA Media and Technology Section awarded "Webbies" in four different categories plus best of show.
