Reference Librarians and Assistant Professors Andrea Alexander Brian Anderson presented a poster at the American Association of Law Libraries annual meeting's poster session in Seattle, WA, in July 2013.  The poster, titled "Neutrality in Academic Law Libraries: The Law Library as Switzerland," looked at library management and organizational theory, compared with Switzerland's policy of armed neutrality, to guide how academic law libraries interact with students, faculty, and administrators of law colleges and universities.  Separately, Andrea and Brian were recognized in the latest issue of the American Association of Law Libraries magazine Spectrum , for placing third in the association's annual photo contest in the category "the artistry of librarianship."  The photo, taken in the Taggart Law Library's Rare Book Room, shows the merging of old and new technologies, with a rare book situated next to an iPad used for research.
