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.
