About Elaine R. Martin

As an award-winning library executive, researcher, and educator with more than 25 years of experience, I have raised more than $18 million during my tenure as the Director of Library Services of UMass Medical School’s Lamar Soutter Medical Library and Director of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England region. Having held leadership roles with the Medical Library Association, Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries, and Boston Library Consortium, I am also the founding editor-in-chief of Journal of E-Science Librarianship and serve on the editorial board on the Journal of Electronic Resources in Medical Libraries. I also teach courses in medical librarianship and e-science data management at Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Sciences and the University of Rhode Island.
