Participants in 2010-2011 NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program Announced
The fellows and mentors selected for the 2010-2011 class of the leadership program jointly sponsored by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL) have been announced.
The NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program is focused on preparing emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries. Selection is recognition of a substantial record of accomplishment and demonstrable potential. The program provides a combination of in-person and virtual learning experiences for fellows and offers the opportunity to work collaboratively with the class of participants. Fellows are paired with mentors who are academic health sciences library directors and will visit the libraries of their mentors.
