An article written by Susan Nevelow Mart, associate professor and director of the William A. Wise Law Library, received the Law Library Journal Article of the Year Award from the American Association of Law Libraries.
Her winning article, “The Algorithm as a Human Artifact: Implications for Legal (Re)Search,” examines how the world of legal research is influenced by the biases and assumptions held by the teams of humans that construct the algorithms fueling such research. Read it here.
Mart, a three-time winner of the Law Library Journal Article of the Year Award, first won for her 2004 article, “Protecting the Lady from Toledo: Post-USA Patriot Act Electronic Surveillance at the Library.” She was honored again in 2006 for “Let the People Know the Facts: Can Government Information Removed From the Internet be Reclaimed?”
The AALL awards program was established to publicly recognize the achievements of law librarians for their service to the profession and contributions to legal literature and materials.
Mart joined the Colorado Law faculty in 2011. Her scholarly and teaching interests center on legal informatics.
