Notable Documents

Each year the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) solicits nominations from states for stellar reports published in the last year. Minnesota librarians and state employees recently nominated five documents for NCSL’s Notable Document Awards from Minnesota; only Texas and Montana had more reports nominated. Each of the five nominated reports stand out for being timely, in-depth, and for being useful to legislators and the public alike.

The document winners will be announced in July but you can read them now!
