Finding Outside Mentors

You don't need to limit mentoring to your workplace. Here are some options to consider:

  • A number of library organizations provide mentoring opportunities through various programs, committees, and projects. 
  • Many library-related conferences also provide conference mentoring and similar services for new attendees. Be sure to check conference programs for those!
  • Reach out to a faculty member in another department.

ALA Mentoring Opportunities

Numerous ALA committees and sections have their own mentoring programs as well.
