John Weed, Head of Collection Resources for the Libraries, has been selected to attend the Texas Library Association’s TALL Texans Leadership Development Institute, June 10-13 at the Montserrat Retreat Center in the town of Lake Dallas.
The application process and selection of participants for the Leadership Conference is extremely competitive. For eighteen years only the best of rising Texas library leaders have been selected for this rigorous but transformational program. Librarians return to their institutions with deeper understanding of management, communication, and strategic planning. Graduates of the program have become directors of major library systems, administrators within school districts and universities, Executive Board members for the Texas Library Association, and leaders in critical initiatives within their own communities.
Luke Rosenberger, Director of Library Technology and Historical Collections, received a Professional Development Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine South Central Region (NN/LM SCR) to attend the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media’s Social Media Residency to be held at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ, April 24-25.
