Need a mentor?

For those at the UGA Libraries, there is an internal mentoring program via the Professional Development & Research Committee. too.

New Member's Roundtable of ALA offers a mentoring program:

Have you been a librarian for 5 years or less? Do you sometimes feel you have professional questions to ask and no one to direct them to? Do you find yourself wondering, in the midst of hardcore budget season, or in that massive collection development strategy meeting...What the heck are they talking about? Well, through NMRT's Mentoring Committee, help has arrived! Here's your chance to meet a new librarian ally, and to have someone to ask about all those questions you can't really ask!

The NMRT Mentoring Committee will pair up "newbie librarians" with "seasoned vets" as part of our Career Mentoring program. The program will last from October 2008 to July 2009. Conference attendance is not required. Membership in ALA is required, and NMRT membership is encouraged. Applications are due October 17, 2008, with the goal of notifying the matching pairs by the end of October.

If you are interested in additional information or would like to be paired with a mentor, please complete the online application at:
