UBC Library is pleased to announce that Chris Hives, University Archivist, has been selected to participate in the 2009/10 Research Library Leadership Fellows Program, from the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). This is an executive leadership program designed and sponsored by seven ARL member libraries: Brigham Young University and the University of Utah; University of Florida; Georgia Institute of Technology; University of Houston; University of Michigan; and University of Western Ontario. The directors of these libraries work with ARL staff to design and facilitate a program that will offer a dramatic new approach to the goal of developing future senior level talent.


Participation in this program represents a significant financial and time commitment by UBC Library and Chris Hives. It also acknowledges the commitment the Library has made toward ensuring continued leadership development.


Congratulations Chris!
