Congratulations to Hongjie Wang, Interim Library Director at the UConn Health Center, and Matthew Wilcox, Associate Director at the Edward and Barbara Netter Library at Quinnipiac University for getting selected for the National Library of Medicine/Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (NLM/AAHSL) Leadership Fellows Program.
Congratulations to Marianne Burke, the Director of the Dana Medical Library at the University of Vermont, who will be serving as a Mentor for the Fellowship.
This past year, Debra Berlainstein, the Associate Director of the Hirsh Health Sciences Library at Tufts University participated in the Fellows Program. Congrats to Debra on completing the Fellows Program!
The NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program prepares emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries. Since the program began in 2002, twenty-six fellowship graduates have assumed director positions. Fellows will have the opportunity to experience another library environment and to work closely with a mentor and collaboratively with other fellows and mentors. The multi-faceted program takes advantage of flexible scheduling and an online learning community.
