Jenna Lanterman is part of the Serials and Electronic Resources team, working to maintain the libraries’ print and online subscriptions and other electronic resources. She ensures subscribed or owned online content is active, findable and accessible to researchers.  Jenna gathers and maintains usage statistics for online resources, and supervises the student assistants who work with the Serials & Electronic Resources team.

When Jenna is not at the library, she spends time with her two sons, at their basketball games, soccer games, and various outdoor activities.  She is involved in several local and regional public education advocacy groups.  Before coming to Smith, Jenna was a middle and high school librarian and still enjoys reading (and chatting about) young adult literature.  She grew up in southern Vermont before living for a number years in New York City, and she loves visiting both of these former homes.
