Mentoring Pilot Program 2022

Hello Community & Junior College Libraries!

Are you new to community college libraries and want to expand your professional knowledge/skills? Or are you an experienced librarian willing to share your knowledge to help others develop their skills? The CJCLS Mentoring Program Committee invites you to participate in the CJCLS Mentorship Pilot Program!

We're now accepting participants until March 15, 2022. Forms are now closed.

After the deadline, participants will be paired (mentor/mentee) and the mentoring pilot program will then run from April 1, 2022 until June 30, 2022.

After the pairing, there will be a Mentoring Program Kick-Off Meeting to review the expectations.  At the end of the program in June, participants will be asked to complete a survey to assist our committee in collecting data on what worked well, what can be improved, and assessing the program overall.

Requirements for Participation: For Mentees - Open to all who are currently employed at a community college library as a librarian, staff, administrator, or students enrolled in or recent graduates from graduate-level Library and Information Science (MLIS) programs. For Mentors - Currently employed at a community college library as a librarian or administrator with a minimum of 4 years of library experience.

How to Apply: Fill out the appropriate application at the link below before our March 15 deadline!
