Ted Glasson Prize
The Ted Glasson Prize is sponsored by the Australian Law Librarian (ALL), the official journal of the Association. An annual prize of $500.00 will be presented for the best article published in the Australian Law Librarian.
The prize was reintroduced in 2020, after not being awarded between 2013 and 2019. The winner is announced by the ALL Editors in the first issue of the ALL the following year, on the ALLA website and via the alla-anz national e-list.
The prize was established in December 2004 in memory of Ted Glasson, who died earlier that year. Ted was the inaugural Law Librarian at Monash University. The award is named after Ted because he produced enduring and scholarly works to assist law librarians, and this inspired other Australian law librarians to write and produce works benefiting law library research in Australia. See the Prize Background and Guidelines for more information about Ted Glasson, why the prize is named after him, and how the prize is awarded.
