Filed under: current awareness,library profession,mentoring — connie @ 2:11 pm

Western University has put out a call for librarians to mentor our future colleagues: “The Mentorship Program of the CLA Student Chapter at the University of Western Ontario is currently recruiting mentors for the upcoming winter term.”

The mentorship program has been successfully matching students in the MLIS program at Western with professionals in the LIS field since its inception. Suggested topics for discussion between mentors and their student mentees include:

  • resume review
  • course recommendations
  • industry overviews
  • professional trends
  • current issues
  • job shadowing
  • library tours
  • attending conferences
  • introductions to other professionals in the field

They have been receiving very positive feedback from both mentors and mentees involved in the program and we invite you to participate!
If you would like to learn more about the program or to register to be a mentor for an LIS student please email: westernmentorship@gmail.com.
