The ARLIS/NA Yearlong Career Mentoring Program is now recruiting mentors and mentees!
Our program begins with a virtual workshop shortly before the 2022 Chicago conference and continues until the 2023 Mexico City conference. The program has matched dozens of art library professionals in successful mentoring relationships and contributes to the wonderful bonds we have with each other for which the Society is known.
You will only need 1-2 hours a month to participate! You can develop your mentor/mentee relationship by Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, phone calls, or by email.
This year’s workshop is scheduled for Friday, April 1 from 11am PST / 1pm CST / 2pm EST and will take place virtually.
Are You New to Art Librarianship or Looking for Guidance? Apply to be a Mentee!
We’re looking for art librarians interested in building their skills for leadership roles (from project management to department management and everything in between) by working with mentors with leadership experience. You will cultivate a professional relationship with your mentor and mutually share your experiences with knowledgeable librarians to explore leadership. The program has matched dozens of art library professionals in successful mentoring relationships and mentors and mentees have raved about how beneficial the program was for them.
“I have gained a lot from the mentorship program and greatly benefited from the experience of having someone with an interest solely in my success without being a work connection and clearly free of ulterior motives. My mentor helps me put things in perspective.” – Delia Tash (former mentee)
