Law Society Library named runner-up in international library awards

The Law Society of Ireland has thanked those who supported the Law Society Library in the Lexis Library Awards competition.

The Law Society Library was named a runner-up for Best Information Service 2016 in the non-commercial sector category award in a competition involving libraries across the UK and Ireland.

The library team were praised for their excellent service, going above and beyond their duty, and helpful can-do attitude.

Significant numbers of small firms and organisations were grateful for the role this library plays in ensuring they are not at a disadvantage against larger firms of counsel with vast resources.

The weekly LawWatch newsletter received particular appreciation from nominators, as did the way that the service has adapted its offerings to help members with a visual impairment.
