Runner Up in Clawbies at FLI

Runner Up in Clawbies at FLI by David Whelan Although I have been blogging personally for awhile, I have only been publishing at Finding Legal Information for about 9 months. When the book came out last May, I had been adding posts for about a month and have continued to supplement information in the book as well as highlight other interesting resources and tools that I find. It was with great humility that I saw that the blog had been selected as a runner up in the 2010 Canadian law blog awards known as the Clawbies. Runner Up in Clawbies at FLI

Karen Sawatzky and Brenda Wong’s collaborative blog called Library Technician Dialog won the Law Librarian Blog award.  Along with Finding Legal Information, my own blog, the runner ups were all people for whom I have very high regard:  Shaunna Mireau, Field Law’s director of knowledge management and libraries and an amazingly energetic spirit in all things legal information, and the folks at the BC Courthouse Libraries who are doing phenomenal things in their new to reach out to their clients, both lawyers and the public, as with their Stream blog.

Thanks to the Clawbies folks for selecting the FLI blog as a runner up.
