WHSC Library’s Associate Director selected as 2017-2018 NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellow

Amy Allison, Associate Director of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library, has been selected as a Fellow in the 2017-2018 NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program, sponsored by the National Library of Medicine and the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries.  The Program prepares emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries through a year-long mentoring relationship with a director of another library and a curriculum focused on developing leadership knowledge critical to enhancing the value of libraries in their institutions. In this highly competitive program, Amy Allison will be one of ten fellows and mentors from academic health sciences libraries across the U.S. who will begin their work together in November.  Since the program began in 2002, 49% of all fellow graduates have assumed director positions.  More information about the program is available at https://aahsl.memberclicks.net/leadership-fellows-program.
