Director
Center for Digital Inclusion
Martin came to the Graduate School of Library and Information Science in 1995 to serve as the first full-time systems administrator for Prairienet Community Network, where we looked at ways to bring this relatively new thing called the Internet to the community to foster stronger community and democracy. He currently is a senior research scientist with the Center for Digital Inclusion. Martin has served a range of boundary spanning roles facilitating community collaborations, shepherding engagement projects, developing innovative technical resources, and advocating system change. He’s particularly interested in how inclusive, dynamic community-based collaborative spaces, appropriately equipped, combined with capacity-building literacy programming can help community members accomplish projects that matter.
