32 Clearinghouse Rev. [i] (1998-1999)

handle is hein.journals/clear32 and id is 1 raw text is: Trbt to Kahrn Steven.so
This issue is dedicated to Katherine Stevenson, the former law
librarian of the National Clearinghouse for Legal Services.
Kathy began the Clearinghouse's poverty law library and was
responsible for its growth and development for over 21 years.
After a long battle with cancer, Kathy passed away on April 11,
1998.-EDrORS.
Katherine Stevenson played a major role in promoting
communication within the legal services community for the
benefit of our clients. Beginning with an initial collection of a
few hundred cases in 1974, Kathy relentlessly built up, orga-
nized, and developed the Clearinghouse's collection of over
500,000 legal documents. Her dedication to building a quality
collection of poverty law documents and ensuring its easy and
timely access through many different media resulted in her
contributing to the work of virtually every legal services advo-
cate in our community. Under Kathy's leadership, several pro-
jects were initiated to make the library operate more effi-
ciently for users. For example, she prepared annual indexes
and developed Folio View infobases on specialized subject
areas. A dedicated and accomplished librarian, she was
named Law Librarian of the Year by the Chicago chapter of
the American Association of Law Librarians in 1996.
As lawyers for poor people represented clients across the
country, Kathy labored diligently behind the scenes. She kept
advocates abreast of major cases of importance. She aggres-
sively pursued information about these cases so that these
advocates could be up-to-date on recent developments and
ultimately represent clients well. Her commitment to this goal
was extraordinary; she devoted countless hours beyond her
normal work schedule to this effort. Kathy was willing to go
the extra mile to assist advocates in the field. We will fondly
remember Kathy for her high standards of professionalism
and her contributions toward the goal of achieving equal jus-
tice for people in poverty.
