TWU’s Martin elected to Urban Libraries Council board



DENTON — Dr. Robert S. Martin, the Lillian Bradshaw Endowed Chair in Library Science at Texas Woman’s University, has been elected to the board of directors of the Urban Libraries Council.

The ULC is a membership organization of 157 of North America’s premier metropolitan public library systems and related library consultants and suppliers. For more than 30 years, the council has worked to strengthen public libraries as an essential part of urban life, serving as a forum for sharing best practices resulting from targeted research, education and forecasting. For more information on the ULC, visit www.urbanlibraries.com.

Dr. Martin, a professor in the TWU School of Library and Information Studies, also serves on the United States National Commission for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a representative of state and local interests. President George W. Bush recently nominated Dr. Martin as a member of the National Council on the Humanities. The nomination requires approval by the U.S. Senate.

Dr. Martin previously served in the Bush administration as director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services from 2001-05.

The Lillian Bradshaw Endowed Chair in Library Science is named in honor of Mrs. Lillian Bradshaw, director of the Dallas Public Library from 1962-1984. The chair was established at TWU in 2005, with Dr. Martin named to the position.
