The OLA Mentoring Program is designed to help early career OLA members
working in libraries and related organizations grow professionally by being
paired with seasoned library staff willing to share their professional
experience and guidance. Mentors and mentees will be partnered based on
similar interests, professional experience, and/or goals.
The mentoring relationship will develop over the course of a year (or nine
months if you’re on a 9 month contract) and contact can take place
in-person or over phone, email, or web conferencing.

If you are an OLA member currently working in a library, are early in your
library career (<5 years), and are looking for support related to your
work, please consider applying to be paired up with a mentor

If you are an OLA member with five or more years of experience in
libraries, consider sharing your experience and wisdom by becoming a mentor
Being a mentor is one of the easiest and most rewarding things you can do
to support our profession.

For more details on the mentoring program and eligibility criteria for
mentors and mentees, visit http://www.olaweb.org/mentor-program. We also
have information on guidelines and best practices for the mentoring
relationship <http://www.olaweb.org/mentoring-guidelines>.
