Bio

Adrianna Martinez entered into academic librarianship through a small college in Brooklyn Heights while attending Pratt Institute for her Master in Library and Information Science. There, she worked with faculty and students to create a safe and comfortable environment and assist with topics ranging from research to current events.

Martinez is interested in how to make difficult subjects more engaging through technology, as well as how students engage with library spaces in an effort to create more inclusive and open environments. In addition to her MLIS, she holds an advanced certificate in digital humanities from Pratt Institute.
