NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program
The Leadership Fellows Program, sponsored by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL), is currently accepting applications and nominations for the August 1, 2012, deadline for potential fellows for the 2012-2013 experience. The Leadership Fellows Program is focused on preparing emerging leaders for the position of library director in academic health sciences libraries. Fellows will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in a variety of learning settings, including exposure to leadership in another environment. They will be paired with mentors who are academic health sciences library directors. In addition to the individual relationship with their mentors, fellows benefit from working collaboratively with other fellows and mentors. Experienced Program faculty and mentors will provide content and facilitation for the cohort.
Candidates for fellow should have a strong interest in pursuing a directorship in academic health sciences libraries, as well as significant management experience. Applications are welcomed from professionals working in academic health sciences libraries, hospital libraries, or other library-related settings. Applications from qualified minority candidates are encouraged.
Applications due: August 1, 2012
