The University of Texas Law Library Awards Tarlton Fellowship for 2005

AUSTIN, Texas — The Tarlton Law Library at The University of Texas School of Law has awarded the 2005 Tarlton Fellowship to Mary Elizabeth Mackey, a 2004 graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Law. The fellowship is funded by the Tarlton Law Library in cooperation with The University of Texas School of Information.

The Tarlton Fellowships were created to encourage scholars interested in law librarianship and legal informatics to pursue careers in law libraries. Recipients, who have earned their JD degrees, receive both a stipend and reduced tuition to The University of Texas graduate School of Information. Fellows work at the Tarlton Law Library throughout the fellowship and are expected to contribute to a number of library projects, as well as to participate in reference and outreach services.

Professor Roy M. Mersky, Harry M. Reasoner Regents Chair in Law and Director of Research at The University of Texas School of Law, said, “We are very pleased that the Tarlton Fellowship has been able to attract candidates of Mary’s caliber and even more pleased to support her research and scholarship. Tarlton Law Library has a long tradition of mentoring and training individuals who have gone on to leadership positions in the profession.” Past Tarlton Fellows have entered careers in judicial, academic, and firm libraries. The last recipient of the Tarlton Fellowship is currently a reference librarian at the U.S. Supreme Court library.

For more information about the Fellowship, please contact Professor Roy M. Mersky, Harry M. Reasoner Regents Chair in Law and Director of Research, The University of Texas School of Law, at (512) 471-7735 or rmersky@law.utexas.edu.
