Lilead Project to Host Webinar on Lilead Fellows on July 8

The Lilead Project at the University of Maryland, College Park will host an Information Session through Adobe Connect on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, 4pm – 5pm EDT to explain the application process for the Lilead Fellows Program. The Lilead Team will speak on how to apply for the Fellows Program, the various application requirements and important due dates, as well as field any questions from session participants about the Fellows Program, the application, or the application process.

The Lilead Fellows Program is an intense 18-month professional development program starting in January 2015 that is designed to empower, enable, and equip school district library supervisors to think differently about their role as leaders in their school districts and to tackle difficult issues with the ultimate goal of promoting positive change and success for all members in their school districts.

The Lilead Fellows Program is an extension of the Lilead Project – a 3-year study conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Maryland’s College of Information Studies – and is made possible in part through funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Its objective is to learn more about the roles, responsibilities, demographics, and impact of the school district library supervisor position.
