AAAL Mentorship Program: Call for Mentors and Mentees

Looking to make connections, share professional advice, meet new colleagues and gain new perspectives on library challenges?  Join the Alberta Association of Academic Libraries (AAAL) Mentorship Program!

The program is open to all practicing library professionals (i.e., with library degree and/or diploma completed) currently employed by an AAAL member institution.

The AAAL Mentorship Committee is recruiting mentors and mentees from its member libraries for the upcoming academic year:

  • Mentors: Offer guidance, support, and encouragement as needed to a fellow AAAL library member who might be early on in their career or taking on new roles. 
  • Mentees: Engage with an experienced library member, develop professional relationships with colleagues in different AAAL library environments, and grow your knowledge of library and information work.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor or a mentee, please check out the detailed information available at the AAAL Mentorship webpage. The application forms for both roles are also accessible through the AAAL site.

**Please note that the program does not facilitate job placements or internships.**

 

Application Deadline: Saturday, July 30, 2022 (with matches communicated in late August).

If you have any questions, please contact the committee: aaal.mentorship@gmail.ca and share this invitation as you see fit.

Thanks for your interest in the AAAL Mentorship Program!
