The Library is pleased to announce Erika Sevetson’s selection into the National Library of Medicine/Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries Leadership Fellows Program. This jointly sponsored program matches five fellows and five mentors in a one-year program that prepares emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries. 

The program provides a combination of in-person and virtual learning experiences for fellows and offers the opportunity to work collaboratively with the cohort of participants. Fellows are paired with mentors who are academic health sciences library directors. Mentors work closely with their fellows throughout the year, and host their fellow’s visit to their library.

Fellows are chosen based on a substantial record of leadership accomplishment and potential for a director position. We are delighted that Erika was selected from among a highly competitive candidate pool to be one of five fellows in the cohort. Her place in this group is a great and well-deserved recognition of Erika’s outstanding work and leadership to date as Brown’s Health Sciences Librarian and the Library’s Director of Academic Engagement for Health, Biomedical, and Physical Sciences.  The fellowship also contributes to Brown’s emergence as a major center for research and education in the life sciences. 

Please join us in congratulating Erika on this tremendous honor and opportunity.
