Dana Library director Consuella Askew is one of 17 library leaders who have been selected to participate in the prestigious leadership development program this summer.

Join us in congratulating Consuella Askew, director of the John Cotton Dana Library at Rutgers University–Newark, who is among the 17 library leaders selected to participate in this year’s Library Senior Fellows program at UCLA.

The international cohort of fellows will travel to UCLA in August for a three-week residential program combining management perspectives, strategic thinking, and practical and theoretical approaches to the issues confronting academic institutions and their libraries.

For Askew, participation in the program is an opportunity to come together with some of the brightest minds in library leadership and refine her vision for the future of Dana Library.

“It’s an honor to have been named a 2018 Library Senior Fellow along with such a distinguished group of colleagues,” said Askew. “I look forward to learning alongside them as we discuss higher education trends, the changing roles of academic libraries, and innovations in services—all of which informs the mission of Dana Library so we can better serve the Rutgers–Newark students, staff, and faculty.”

“The Library Senior Fellows program is the longest-standing formal leadership development program for librarians in the country,” added vice president for information services and university librarian Krisellen Maloney. “We are so proud to have Consuella represent Rutgers University Libraries on this prestigious stage.”

Library Senior Fellows at UCLA is a collaborative effort of the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, the UCLA Library, and Ithaka S+R. For more information, visit seniorfellows.library.ucla.edu.
