Mary Marlino.

Mary Marlino, former director of DLESE, took the helm of the NCAR Library on July 10. An educator by training, Mary has worked for the past 20 years in various aspects of educational technology and digital libraries, experience she’ll use to take the library in new directions.

“My goal is to strengthen and expand the research environment that the library has traditionally offered our community, and to ensure that it remains a key contributor to the NCAR institutional values of integration, innovation, and community building,” Mary says.

Her official job title—director of e-Science and the NCAR Library—reflects changes in the role of the library. The term e-Science refers to global collaboration in key areas of science and the next generation of infrastructure that will enable it. It is often used to describe computationally intensive science carried out in highly distributed network environments or science that utilizes immense data sets.

Under Mary’s leadership, the library will initiate a planning process that engages staff and members of the broader UCAR community to make certain that new services fit their needs. High priorities include services that support collaborative science and scholarly communication processes, and that extend access to digital collections to UCAR members and affiliates. The library will also examine options for remodeling its physical sites.

“Mary’s experience will be critical as we continue—and expand—our tradition of great library services at NCAR,” says NCAR deputy director Larry Winter.

Mary came to UOP in 1998. She was responsible for the design, technical development, and daily operations of DLESE. Under her guidance, DLESE grew into an educational digital library now serving over a million users annually.
