Participants in Leadership Fellows Program Announced

The fellows and mentors selected for the fourth 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, offered in cooperation with the Association of Research Libraries Office of Leadership and Management Services, is focused on preparing emerging leaders for director positions in academic health center libraries. The program provides a combination of in-person and virtual learning opportunities for fellows and offers the opportunity to work collaboratively with the class of participants. Fellows are paired with mentors who are academic health center library directors and will visit the libraries of their mentors.
