Discussion NMRT Mentoring Committee Seeking More Mentors

by Cheryl Blevens on Thu, Oct 30, 2014 at 03:57 pm

Kindly forgive the cross posting!

 

Do you find yourself wishing that someone would have been there to teach you all that you now know? Would you like to walk alongside a new librarian as they enter the profession?

Kindly forgive the cross posting!

 

Do you find yourself wishing that someone would have been there to teach you all that you now know? Would you like to walk alongside a new librarian as they enter the profession?

Here is your chance to participate in a great new project from the New Members Round Table of ALA (NMRT), to meet a new librarian ally, and to have someone to guide as they learn the ins and outs of librarianship. The NMRT Mentoring Committee's Career Mentoring Program focuses on long term mentoring. We will pair up "newbie librarians" with "seasoned vets" as part of a year-long mentoring program.

The NMRT Career Mentoring program will last from October 2014 to July 2015. Conference attendance is not required, but membership in ALA is required, and NMRT membership is encouraged.

For further information and to apply, please visit

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions after visiting the site.

Sincerely,

The New Member Round Table Mentoring Committee

Often viewed as a hindrance and a source of apprehension, copyright law affects all educators and academic librarians. As colleges and universities increase their online course (educational/instructional) offerings, the rights of ownership and rules of fair use are only further complicated. Join the ACRL Distance Learning Section Discussion Group for a discussion focused on the state of copyright in distance learning. Learn more about the role of librarians in providing resource support for distance learning courses and faculty’s teaching needs. Panelists include Copyright MOOC facilitators Kevin Smith from Duke University and Anne Gilliland (formerly of OSU) from the University of North Caroline-Chapel Hill as well as Luann Edwards of Tiffin University and Patricia Aufderheide of American University, this will be an opportune conversation to advance your understanding and competency in distance learning copyright issues.

Take part in our discussion on Twitter with #dlscopyrightchat. For more information, please contact Jill Hallam-Miller at JillHallam-Miller@centralpenn.edu or at 717-728-2415.
