Jessica Olin, Information Literacy/Instruction Librarian at the Hiram College Library, has been accepted to the prestigious Frye Leadership Institute 2012.
According to their materials, “Frye engages leaders who seek to further develop their skills for the benefit of higher education.” The institute is a cooperative effort between Educause, a nonprofit organization that promotes and focuses on the uses of information technology in higher education, and the Council on Library and Information Resources, who work with college and university libraries, as well as other communities of higher learning.
Olin will be one of a small group of individuals, information technology professionals and librarians, who will come to Frye from institutions of higher education around the United States. In addition to being accepted to this annual event, Olin won a full scholarship for $5,000 to attend the event as a part of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Leadership Through Communities of Knowledge Scholarship Program, which is sponsored by both IMLS and the Council of Independent Colleges.
Olin will spend a week with the other Frye Fellows in June, 2012, in Washington, D.C., and she will then work on a cooperative project throughout the rest of the year.
