OCLC Celebrates 20 Years of Fellowship Program

Nancy Lensenmayer, OCLC’s program director for education and professional development, writes on the OCLC Next blog, “Who would have imagined that the program announced at the 1999 IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Thailand would have such an incredible, far-reaching impact? That’s exactly what the Jay Jordan IFLA/OCLC Fellowship, an education and professional development program for early career librarians from developing countries, has done. Twenty years later, the program has realized [its] potential. … What a joy it has been to work with IFLA and the 95 remarkable early career librarians from 42 developing countries selected for program participation!”

She continues, “Where are the Fellows now and what are they doing? Energetic, enthusiastic, and engaged, these library leaders are developing and implementing best practices and making significant contributions to librarianship. Many have assumed leadership positions in libraries and professional associations in their countries. Others have earned advanced degrees and are teaching in library schools, mentoring young professionals, and partnering on collaborative projects.”
