De Santis selected as Mentor in leadership program

Melissa DeSantis-low resMelissa De Santis has been selected as a mentor in the 2018-2019 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, Melissa 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, 54% of all fellow graduates have assumed director positions.  Melissa participated as a fellow in the program in 2012-2013 and is looking forward to participating as a mentor later this year.
