If you’re passionate about library leadership, you make your own sunshine!

Why would anyone willingly leave sunny California to visit chilly, bleak Upstate New York in the spring?

Turns out, if you’ve dedicated yourself to the future of libraries, information and health sciences, and leadership, you’d gladly do such a zany thing!

In early May, we welcomed Tania Bardyn, Associate Director for Public Services, UCLA Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library. Julie Sollenberger, Miner Library’s director, is serving as Tania’s mentor through the NLM/AAHSL* Leadership Fellows Program. This 12-month program is designed to prepare emerging leaders to become directors of academic health sciences libraries.

Tania did a lot of running around during her visit. She met with library leaders on all our campuses, and she also met with several members of Medical Center senior leadership. (‘Course running around also helped her stay warm!) Tania will return for a second week-long visit in the summer.
