The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) Professional Development Committee (PDC) is excited to announce this Call for Participation in our Mentorship Program for 2019-20.
We invite people interested in being mentors and mentees to complete the application: https://forms.gle/AWxLw3YeJCTC2VdGA
Applications are due July 11, 2019.
The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) Professional Development Committee (PDC) reviews registration information and matches mentoring pairs over the summer months. Program participants are free to arrange times to talk or meet up as meets their needs. Watch for opportunities to catch-up at events like the spring IG workshops or the ALAO Annual conference. The annual program typically runs from August through early May, and participants will be invited to give feedback on their experience to allow the PDC to evaluate and update the program as needed.
Who Can Be a Mentee?
Everyone is welcome to be a mentee, whether you are a student, a newly minted professional, or a more seasoned librarian. This is a great opportunity to connect with someone in the field who will work with you to develop your career.
Who Can Be a Mentor?
We welcome mentors from all levels of professional experience in academic libraries. Mentoring offers a meaningful way to engage with a colleague, be a supportive listener, and help them identify and achieve their professional goals.
Interested in Both?
If you are interested in both mentoring someone and being mentored, simply submit the form twice—once for your preferences as a mentee and once for your preferences as a mentor.
