FCIL Newsletter / Autumn 1995
News of Our Colleagues
by Mila Rush
University of Minnesota Law Library
For this issue, we have news about two of our members: Kent
McKeever and Paul Zarins.
Kent McKeever, Columbia University Law Library, was in
Kazakhstan for two weeks during the summer of 1994. When the
newly independent state of Kazakhstan needed help from a law
librarian in analyzing its user needs and in drafting a workplan
for establishing a legal information center, Kent was that law
librarian. Read about Kent's work for US/AID in Kazakhstan in the
Our second personality is Paul Zarins, who will have "moved
on" by the time you read this. Paul is making giant leaps,
geographically and professionally, this summer, moving from the
District of Columbia to California. At the end of August he
completed over five years of service as International/Foreign Law
Librarian at the Jacob Burns Law Library, George Washington
University, to become the social sciences bibliographer at the
Cecil H. Green Library, Stanford University.
We will miss Paul in the law library community, and more so in
the FCIL sub-community. Among his contributions to the FCIL SIS,
I will especially remember Paul's immediate willingness to help
launch the Electronic Issues Group by agreeing to be its first
coordinator. Thanks to Paul's (and his successors ) imaginative,
informative, invigorating agendas, the Electronic Issues Working
Group is now among the SIS's very well-attended meetings.
