Maria Collins, Head of Acquisitions and Discovery, has been selected to attend the Harvard Leadership Institute for Academic Librarians (LIAL) this summer.
Part of the Harvard Institutes for Higher Education programs, the weeklong institute helps librarians develop a long-range vision for their libraries so that they are better able to respond to emerging informational and institutional needs. The program focuses on three areas of leadership—planning, organizational strategy and change, and transformational learning.
“I feel very fortunate to be selected to attend the Harvard Leadership Institute for Academic Librarians,” Collins writes. “I have heard wonderful recommendations for the program, and I am most excited about having an opportunity to work with and learn from my Institute cohort.”
“My hope is that the Leadership Institute will enhance my ability to form partnerships and collaborations and that knowledge gained from the program will provide a framework for continued efforts to transform technical services at NCSU Libraries.”
