Mary Marlino to head
NCAR Library, e-Science
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.
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
“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.
