ARLIS/NA Career Mentoring Program Workshop
Are you currently in a leadership position 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 2016-17 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 Jennifer Friedman and Shira Loev Eller will lead the workshop, which is divided into sections for mentees, mentors, and the combined group. The presentation 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 style is through PowerPoint, discussion, group-work, and independent writing exercises.

Those interested in the career mentoring program must complete a separate registration with the Mentoring Subcommittee before registering for this workshop. We will begin accepting applications for mentees in early 2016, so please check back, or watch the ARLIS/NA listserv for more information.
