Emerging Leader- Ossom Williamson
The NN/LM SCR is partnering with the South Central Academic Medical Libraries Consortium (SCAMeL) to offer the Emerging Leaders Award. The purpose of this award is to motivate and prepare a junior librarian (2-5 years of experience) for a position of leadership in an academic health sciences library. The award will pair a librarian with a SCAMeL academic health sciences library director who will serve as his or her mentor. The SCAMeL volunteer mentor will introduce the award recipient to the financial and administrative roles and responsibilities of a health sciences library director. The award will include visits to the mentor's library, the SCAMeL meeting at SCC/MLA, and the NN/LM SCR office.
