Emerging Leader Award Recipient Katie Prentice
Congratulations to Katherine “Katie” Prentice for being the recipient of the 2012 Emerging Leaders Award. The NN/LM SCR partnered with the South Central Academic Medical Libraries Consortium (SCAMeL) to offer this award in order to motivate and prepare a librarian for a position of leadership in an academic health sciences library. Modeled on the NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Award, this project will pair Katie with her mentor, Debbie Sibley of the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center – New Orleans Library (LSU-NOLA). Katie will have the opportunity to develop her knowledge and skills in a variety of learning settings, including exposure to leadership in another environment.
As part of the award, Katie will travel to the LSU-NOLA library to meet with Debbie. She will also visit the NN/LM SCR office to learn how it interfaces with the Region as a whole.
