Dr. Kwanghyuk Yoo, SJD and MLIS candidate at the University of Iowa, has won the AALL/LexisNexis Call for Papers, Student Division Award for 2019. The title of his paper is: “Behavioral and Structural Remedies for Cognitive Bias on Legal Information: The Evolving Role of Law Libraries and Enhanced Integrated Library Systems Design.” The award will be conferred at the annual meeting of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) in Washington, DC in July, along with a monetary prize. The selection committee seeks (1) to promote scholarship of interest to the profession of law librarianship; (2) to provide a creative outlet for law librarians and a forum for their scholarly activities; and (3) to recognize the scholarly efforts of established members, of new members, and of students who are considering a career as law librarians. His paper will be forwarded to the editors of the Law Library Journal, the preeminent journal for the profession, for publishing consideration. Dr. Yoo is familiar to many of the library staff both because of his interest in our profession and because he was a student worker in the Law Library. We’re excited to share his accomplishment with our community.
