She is among a handful of people who have been instrumental in reshaping our professional literature, setting high standards for scholarship and writing, while making the literature meaningful and accessible to both researchers and practitioners.” St. Clair has a distinguished record of service to the profession. She has contributed to the body of scholarship and scholarly communication by serving as editor of three prestigious journals – College & Research Libraries (1990-96), Journal of Academic Librarianship (1996-2000) and Portal: Libraries and the Academy (2000-03). During her tenures as editor, she was responsible for publishing many groundbreaking contributions to the body of scholarly literature in academic and research librarianship.
