AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas at Austin School of Law announced Friday that The Tarlton Law Library has received an LPeRCy award from the Library Public Relations Council. The award will be presented on Monday, June 28, at the Council’s annual dinner held at this year’s conference of the American Library Association in Orlando.
The LPeRCy award recognizes outstanding publicity materials produced by libraries serving populations of different sizes. The Library received the LPeRCy award for the series of brochures that were designed and distributed by the Library to the following groups who utilize the Library's services and resources: UT-Austin law students, members of the UT Law faculty, members of the UT-Austin community, lawyers, and the public. Each of the brochures describes particular services of interest to those Library patrons and highlights both traditional and online services and resources.
The Library Public Relations Council was organized in 1940 to promote the development of effective public relations skills for library public relations practitioners and other staff members responsible for, or interested in, public relations activities.
