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
