You must apply and be accepted to the Yearlong Mentoring Program in order to attend this workshop. Fee: $0

This workshop will be the catalyst for the year-long mentoring program, which pairs emerging and established leaders in the art library community and providing them with the tools to support and carry out a successful mentoring relationship.

Our program begins with a workshop at the 2019 Salt Lake City, Utah conference and continues until the 2020 Saint Louis, Missouri conference.  The three-hour workshop will be led the ARLIS/NA Mentoring Subcommittee. Prior to the workshop, there will be light pre-work that includes an introduction to mentoring; characteristics of mentors, mentees, and the mentoring relationship; realistic goal-setting; appropriate behavior and expectations; methods of communication; and benefits and potential pitfalls of mentoring. The presentation will continue building on these topics through PowerPoint, discussion, group-work, and working in your mentoring pairs.

Go to the ARLIS/NA Mentoring Subcommittee homepage if you’d like to learn more about the program and being a mentee or mentor. If you have questions, contact Megan Lotts at megan.lotts@rutgers.edu.

This year’s workshop is tentatively followed by an optional happy hour for all past and present mentor and mentees.
