John Collins Leadership Scholarships

To honor the contributions and achievements of John Collins as he retires from his position as Faculty Librarian and Head of the Gutman Library at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), ACRL and his colleagues at HGSE  welcome donations for scholarships to provide financial support for academic and research librarians to attend the annual Leadership Institute for Academic Librarians (LIAL). The original idea for this program was John’s and he has worked diligently during the fifteen years of the program to make it a successful experience for everyone who attends.
