ASGCLA’s membership committee is pleased to announce the launch of the division’s second annual mentoring program.
This full year program is designed to provide knowledge, insight and training on advocacy for specific specialized areas of librarianship. Mentees should have an interest in one or more of ASGCLA’s core areas of service including state library agencies, federal and armed forces libraries, working with populations that are underserved, library cooperatives and consortia, independent librarians or consultants. Mentors will offer unique insights to the services, career opportunities and professional growth provided through less-known niche areas of library services.
“I’m glad to see this valuable program continuing. I’m especially excited about the mentor and mentee opportunities for federal librarians, as a result of last year’s merger with the Federal and Armed Forces Libraries Round Table,” stated ASGCLA President Adam Szczepaniak.
The 2019-2020 cohort of mentors and mentees will meet and begin their year-long journey at the 2019 ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC. Mentor applications are open to ASGCLA members while mentee applications are open to all. The 2019 ALA Annual Conference registration fee will be covered for mentees, if selected. Application are being accepted through April 12, 2019. Learn more and apply today.
