NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program

Participants in NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program announced

The Future Leadership Committee is pleased to announce the members of the 2013-2014 NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program class, the twelfth year of the program. The candidate pool for fellows and demand for the program remain strong. Selection is competitive and recognition of a substantial record of accomplishment and demonstrable potential for a director position. For the first time, the cohort will include six fellows and their mentors.

The committee thanks the AAHSL directors who were willing to be in a preliminary pool for a potential match with a fellow. All new mentors will be in the cohort, paired with the fellows. For the second time, one of the mentors is a former fellow. The mentors are an essential part of making the program a success.

The NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program to prepare emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries is jointly funded by NLM and AAHSL. Since the program began in 2002, twenty-two fellow graduates have assumed director positions. Information about the program is available here.
