Looking for a Mentor? Want to Be a Mentor?
ALA has launched MentorConnect (
http://connect.ala.org/mentorconnect-help ) in ALA Connect (http://connect.ala.org/ ) so you can find or become a mentor.
MentorConnect ( http://connect.ala.org/node/82872 ) (*MC*) allows
ALA members to create mentoring profiles that highlight their expertise and experience. After they*ve joined MC, ALA members can search for a mentor using a variety of criteria (gender, type of library, ethnicity, etc.) and request mentorship. Once created, the mentorship is tracked within MC, with a space for providing and archiving feedback. The system will prompt mentors and mentorees every few months to ensure they are
staying in touch.
To learn all about this new service, see Mentoring Starter Questions (http://connect.ala.org/node/82872 ) and Mentoring and MentorConnect FAQ ( http://connect.ala.org/mentorconnect-help ).
