Canadian Association of Law Libraries Mentoring Program Applications Now Open
This is a unique opportunity for CALL members to grow professionally and network within the profession:
"The CALL Mentorship Program is an initiative intended to connect law library professionals pursuing new professional development with more experienced professionals. Mentees can come from any background in legal librarianship, or even straight from a library program at the university or college level. There is no maximum number of years in the profession for mentees - if you feel that you would like to grow as a professional in your job or your new tasks, and would benefit from the guidance and support of another professional, then being a mentee could be for you. Similarly, mentors can come from any of the areas of legal librarianship, with no set minimum number of years in the profession. As a guideline, however, we suggest five years experience. Mentors have the opportunity to help in the professional growth of a colleague, and by extension, the strength of legal librarianship as a profession. Mentors may also find the partnership enables their own professional growth, and heightens engagement in the profession and the CALL community."The application form for both mentees and mentors is on the CALL website.
Applications must be sent in by April 4, 2014.
