Applications are now open at www.ala.org/yalsa/mentoring for YALSA’s two-way mentoring program.YALSA’s new mentoring program will pair an experienced librarian with a new librarian or graduate student in a library science program. YALSA believes that we all have important skills and knowledge that we can share with one another and so this program encourages protÃ©gÃ©s to share their skills and know-how with their mentor.
YALSA will accept applications from YALSA members in two categories: protÃ©gÃ©s and mentors. ProtÃ©gÃ©s are defined as those with five years’ experience or less or students in a graduate library school program. Mentors are defined as those with more than six years’ experience.
Applications are due by June 30.
