Many colleagues will also recall her involvement in the creation and development of all-day educa- tional programs for the Practicing Law Institute. Seer's inuence can be seen in the management philosophies she authored as well as her devotion to colleagues. Many of her contempo- raries praised her willingness to be a positive role model and mentor to law librarians, always encouraging oth- ers to engage and learn. It was noted that she was always available to con- sult about ideas, even as she entered into retirement. Seer was a leader in keeping abreast of current trends in law librarianship and ancillary areas in law rms, such as business devel- opment, competitive intelligence, knowledge management, conicts, and records. One nominator noted her "winning style of simultaneously being fully prepared and completely at ease." Another nominator said, "She listened to any sta member who had an idea, and was open to positive change. [She was] willing to take a risk and support the work that innovation requires; she exemplied creative management, which can ener- gize a sta or an entire eld." Her work in law rm libraries has been featured in various publications, including American Lawyer, National Law Journal, and New York Law Journal. She also contributed to the book Law Librarianship in a Digital Age by Ellyssa Kroski, which was awarded the Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award in 2014. Seer spread her wisdom about private law libraries through regular speaking engagements at AALL Annual Meetings and Private Law Librarians and Information Professionals Special Interest Section programs. All of these accomplishments and contributions demonstrate the outstanding service to law librarianship that make Seer an ideal recipient of the Marian Gould Gallagher Award. ¢ Katrina M.
