Editors of the ABA Journal have selected the Law Library’s In Custodia Legis blog as an inductee to its Blawg 100 Hall of Fame for 2018. The Hall of Fame features the very best law blogs, known for their untiring ability to craft high-quality, engaging posts, sometimes on a daily basis.
If you’ve been following our blog over the past few years, you might remember that ABA Journal included us on their annual Web 100 lists for 2014, 2015, and 2016. We are delighted and honored to make it into the Blawg 100 Hall of Fame!
“The web is a constantly evolving space, and we enjoy shining a light on new and useful blogs, tools and people for legal professionals to follow,” Editor and Publisher Molly McDonough said. “We started this project as the Blawg 100 in 2007, but over the years have broadened the scope to include podcasts and social media. This year, we added a category to explore tools that have practical applications for your day-to-day life as a lawyer. We hope the Web 100 provides readers with entertainment, engagement and a way to keep abreast of the newest developments in the legal industry.”
Over the years, the Law Library’s blog team has grown from a small group of five pioneering law librarians to 19 active bloggers and editors. Like our colleagues who contribute to their respective Library division’s blogs, we write, edit, and publish posts that we hope will introduce our audience to the depth and breadth of the Library’s collections.
As the managing editor for the blog, I would like to take this opportunity to applaud my colleagues on the In Custodia Legis blog team (including our alumni bloggers: Jeanine, Clare, Tina, Christine, and Kimberly) and to thank them for continuing to contribute high-quality content month after month.
