U-M librarian joins UCLA Library Senior Fellows program
Melissa Levine, Lead Copyright Officer and Librarian at the University of Michigan Library, has been accepted to the UCLA Library Senior Fellows program, a signature honor.
According to its website, the Library Senior Fellows at UCLA, created in 1982, “has identified and developed numerous academic library leaders who have gone on to distinguished careers. Over the years more than 250 academic librarians have participated in this highly prestigious program. Their names constitute a virtual ‘who’s who’ of academic library leadership in the United States and Canada.”
"I am delighted to join the 2018 cohort of the UCLA Library Senior Fellows program,” Levine said. “Friends and colleagues who participated in past years found it to be an invaluable opportunity.
“I appreciate the support of the University of Michigan Library for this letting me think about how to leverage my experience and expertise going into the future."
The intensive, three-week residential program convenes every two years, this year in August. It combines “management perspectives, strategic thinking, and practical and theoretical approaches to the issues confronting academic institutions and their libraries.”
