SLIS Alumna Melanie Kowalski earns Emory University fellowship
Congratulations to SLIS Alumna Melanie Kowalski (M.L.I.S. '11), who has been appointed the 2011-2013 Research Librarian Fellow at Emory University.
The new Librarian Fellows program at Emory offers participants the opportunity to develop expertise, leadership and project management skills.
Kowalski will be working in the Intellectual Property Rights Office on various projects relating to the digital presence and collocation of copyright educational information provided by the office, the new Open Access policy, the burgeoning Institutional Repository, and assisting students and faculty with authors' rights education and various other initiatives to support the library's Digital Scholarship strategic goals. The position is mutually beneficial in that, like a residency position, it affords her the opportunity to work in a variety of departments and gather a lot of experience in all aspects of academic librarianship.
