For the 5th year, Lawyers Weekly is saluting “unsung heroes” by honoring professionals in various areas. This year, two of our own have been nominated as Law Librarians : Richard Adamo and Meg Hayden.
Richard Adamo, Essex Law Library : “When Richie took over the library, it was a disaster. He turned it into one of the finest law libraries anywhere. He is also a model civil servant. He will drop everything to help a patron and will not stop until he finds an answer. If that means going to another library for the resource, it is done. He also treats everyone the same. If a non-lawyer or pro se litigant comes in for help, they are treated as well or better than the attorneys. He is a true gentleman and a fine librarian.”
Meg Hayden, Electronic Resources Librarian : “Meg serves as electronic resources librarian for the Massachusetts Trial Court Law Libraries. In addition to keeping all of the TCLLs connected, Meg has designed a top-notch website that provides access to laws and legal information ranging from abortion to zoning. Meg has spent many a long weekend and evening developing and refining the cases database to insure free access to Supreme Judicial court and Appeals Court cases. Meg’s vision of customer service has been an inspiration to us all in the Trial Court Law Libraries.”
The luncheon for all the nominees is Friday, September 18th. We know you will join us in offering Meg and Richard a hearty congratulations for their nominations. They are the best!
