On-the-Fly Mentoring Service at ALA 2015 Midwinter
Want to share your experience and make new connections at ALA Midwinter?
ULS has created an opportunity for mentoring, advising, and learning with and from other members and the ALA community. It’s called On-the-Fly Mentoring, and it might be just the thing for you . . . as a mentor, a mentee, or both!
An ad hoc committee was formed earlier this year to investigate the possibility of providing mentoring opportunities to ULS members. That group developed an On-the-Fly Mentoring service for ALA Annual 2014.
The service allows a mentee to talk with a mentor for a 20-minute session, on a scheduled or drop-in basis. The service was offered from the ALA Placement Center, which proved to be a great location since so many new librarians and job seekers were attending Placement Center programs, and the concept was a hit.
The ULS Membership Committee will provide On-the-Fly Mentoring again at the ALA Midwinter Conference in Chicago, so watch for details and plan to join us!
