Marshall Keys has worked as a college professor, serials librarian, reference librarian, library director, and academic dean. After a decade as Executive Director of NELINET, the largest library organization in New England, Marshall Keys founded MDA Consulting to pursue his interest in the effects of large-scale social, economic, political, and technological change on libraries and other information-intensive organizations. He encourages librarians to think strategically by serving as a facilitator in their planning processes and by demonstrating and teaching the art of environmental scanning. Since 1999, he has been a member of the adjunct faculty of the Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science.

Dr. Keys earned a PhD in English from Vanderbilt University and also holds a master's degree in Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Active in a number of professional organizations, he frequently writes and speaks on the impact of technology and social change on libraries.

His awards are numerous and include the Emerson Greenaway Award (1999), given by the New England Library Association for outstanding career contributions to librarianship. In July 2000, the Association of Library Trustees and Advocates named him to the National Advocacy Honor Roll.

Dr. Keys is in demand as a keynote speaker and has addressed the North Carolina Library Association, the Vermont Library Association, and many other organizations.
