University of Houston Libraries is pleased to host an Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Leadership Fellow this week.
Michelle Light of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) visited the University of Houston as part of the ARL Leadership Fellows program, which is an executive leadership program designed and sponsored by ARL member libraries that facilitates the development of future senior-level leaders in large research libraries and archives.
Among many activities during the course of the program, fellows engage in a customized, immersive experience with a library director. Light, who is the director of Special Collections & Archives at UNLV, followed the schedule of UH Libraries dean Lisa German, attending meetings and events, and speaking with Libraries staff as well as University faculty. Light also visited Rice University Fondren Library.
