Announcing new NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows‏

The fellows and mentors selected for the 2015-2016 class of the leadership program jointly sponsored by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL) have been announced. The program has matched fellows and mentors in a one year leadership development program annually since 2002.

The NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program prepares emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries, through a combination of in-person and virtual learning experiences and a formal mentor pairing with an academic health sciences library director.
