Lisa Martin, coordinator of outreach and business librarian at University of Houston Libraries, has been selected to participate in the 2019-2020 UH Cougar Chairs Leadership Academy (CCLA).
Provost Paula Myrick Short launched CCLA to cultivate leadership talent on the UH campus that will engender student success by scaffolding faculty achievement.
In her role at UH Libraries, Martin works with a team of librarians who focus on relationship building and messaging to increase awareness of library services across campus and in the community. She also works closely with faculty in her liaison areas of hospitality, human development and consumer sciences, and management and leadership to conduct course-based research sessions, schedule research consultations, and assess resources and materials. Martin’s research interests include emotional intelligence and leadership; effective library outreach efforts; and the post-graduation information skills of business students. She received her MLIS from the University of California at Los Angeles.
