Are you contemplating a career change and need advice? Do you have a wealth of experience that you would like to share with others? Would you like to increase your networking opportunities? Do you feel uncertain about attending your first AALL conference? Would you like an opportunity to give back to the law librarian community? If these thoughts sound familiar then the Mentoring Committee encourages you to participate in the 2002 Mentoring Project as either a mentor or mentee.

The purpose of the Mentor Project is three-fold: to provide an informal, personal source of information for newer members; to provide an avenue by which experienced law librarians may meet promising new members of the profession; and to provide a network for members who are contemplating a move to another type of library.

The Mentor Project is open to librarians from all types of libraries. Each participant will be assigned to a member whose profile matches, as closely as possible, his or her request. Applications will be reviewed by the Committee on Mentoring, Retention, and CONELL, which includes representatives from a wide range of employer categories.

If you are interested in participating, please visit our website at http://www.aallnet.org/committee/mentoring/mentor_project.html and submit your mentor or mentee application by June 1, 2002. Please also take a moment to review our selection of articles and tips on mentoring. We look forward to hearing from you.
