ARLIS/NA Yearlong Mentoring Program Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You must apply and be accepted to the Yearlong Mentoring Program in order to attend the workshop. The Yearlong Mentoring Program is administered by the Mentoring Subcommittee. For more information about the program, visit Mentoring Programs on the ARLIS/NA website. Applications to the program will open in January and the link will be on the Mentoring Programs page. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Friedman (jennifer.friedman@umass.edu).

Do you have leadership experience within your organization or within ARLIS/NA, or are you hoping to attain a leadership role in the future? The ARLIS/NA Mentoring Subcommittee is focusing its 2018-19 career mentoring program on cultivating relationships between mentors and mentees interested in leadership. This workshop will be the catalyst for the year-long mentoring program, pairing emerging and established leaders in the art library community and providing them with the tools to support and carry out a successful mentoring relationship.

The four-hour workshop is loosely modeled on the 2005 ARLIS/NA Mentoring Program workshop led by Margaret Law, associate director of the University of Alberta Learning Services. Mentoring subcommittee members will lead the workshop. Prior to the workshop, there will be 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.

Fee: $0
Advance application and acceptance required, see above.
