NLM, AAHSL Announce 2013-2014 Leadership Fellows Program Participants

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL) are pleased to announce the selection of fellows and mentors for the 2013-2014 class of their jointly sponsored leadership program. This will be the twelfth LFP class.

The NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program prepares emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries. Selection is recognition of a substantial record of accomplishment and demonstrable potential. It provides a combination of in-person and virtual learning experiences for fellows and offers the opportunity to work collaboratively with the cohort of participants. Fellows are paired with mentors who are academic health sciences library directors and will visit the libraries of their mentors.
