Aaron Kirschenfeld began his new position in the law library today as Reference & Digital Initiatives Librarian...and he just learned over the weekend that he has won the American Association of Law Libraries Call for Papers Student Division Award for his Masters' paper, Yellow Flag Fever: Describing Negative Legal Precedent in Citators. He also won the SILS faculty award for best Masters paper, so he is definitely getting some encouragement for this work.
Join all of his new colleagues in welcoming Aaron and congratulating him!
