Last week the OLA Membership Committee sent the message below to all OLA
members announcing a new mentoring program.
If you have an interest in mentoring a new librarian, we hope that you will
apply. If you're not an OLA member, please join
OLA Mentoring Program
Are you looking to give back to your library community? Would you like to
help support an early-career librarian’s professional trajectory? OLA is
excited to provide librarians with at least five years of professional
experience the opportunity to mentor new professionals. Mentoring has been
shown to be beneficial to the careers of both mentors and mentees.
This one year (or nine-month if preferred) pilot program will match you
with an early-career librarian based on your skills and desire to help
maintain a dynamic library profession. You determine how you would like to
communicate -- by phone, email, video conference, or in person -- on a
schedule you determine.
Please visit the links below to get more information, guidelines for
mentoring, and to apply.
