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.
