Event October Chat: Establishing an ALCTS Mentoring Program

by Heylicken Moreno on Thu, Oct 15, 2015 at 10:01 am

Whether you’re a student, recent graduate, new or experienced librarian, being in a mentor/mentee relationship can provide you with professional and personal enrichment. Library organizations have been aware of the value found in such relationships and have established numerous mentoring programs that range from structured, formal arrangements, to informal interactions between mentors and mentees. As ALCTS investigates the best approach for establishing its own mentoring program, the division wants your input in order to make it successful.
