Since its creation in 1982, the UCLA Library Senior Fellows program has identified and developed numerous academic library leaders who have gone on to distinguished careers. Over the years,
more than 250 academic librarians have participated in this highly prestigious program. Their names
constitute a virtual “who’s who” of academic library leadership in the United States and Canada.

Scheduled every two years, this intensive, three-week residential program combines management perspectives, strategic thinking, and practical and theoretical approaches to the issues confronting academic institutions and their libraries.

The program receives generous administrative support from the UCLA Library.

Due to public health initiatives to reduce transmission of COVID-19, the next UCLA Library Senior Fellows Program has been postponed to July 2022.
