Danielson Named UCLA Senior Fellow for 2003

Virginia Danielson, Richard F. French Librarian at HCL's Loeb Music Library, has been named one of fifteen UCLA Senior Fellows for 2003. Danielson, along with other top academic library leaders, will spend three weeks at UCLA in August investigating higher education and educational policy in relation to libraries. "Building strong, cooperative networks locally, nationally, and internationally is essential to the progress and well-being of libraries. This program will give me an opportunity to work with colleagues from across the United States on key issues affecting Harvard libraries, such as access and preservation of multimedia materials. Furthermore, the program will provide distance from the daily life of the library, which will allow me to think about the future of libraries and how things will work in years to come," said Danielson.

Following a national competition held by the UCLA Department of Information Studies, Danielson was selected from over 100 applicants. Other fellows include Don Panzera, Chief, European/Latin American Acquisitions Division, Library of Congress; Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Coordinator for Information Literacy Services and Instruction, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and Julia Zimmerman, Dean of Libraries, Ohio University.

The UCLA program was established in 1982. Since its inception, over 165 academic librarians have participated, and this year marks the twelfth year the program has been held. It will be directed by Dr. Beverly P. Lynch, professor, GSE&IS, UCLA. "Ginny will be a wonderful addition to this program—it will be better for her participation, and the library will be better for the new ideas she'll bring back to Harvard," said Jeffrey Horrell, associate librarian of Harvard College for collections.
