MAC/MLA’s Research Mentoring Program
The Mid Atlantic Chapter of MLA’s Research & Assessment Committee is starting a research mentoring program for its chapter where individuals can be connected to a mentor for help with their research projects. I serve as chair of the MAC/RAC and I’m looking for some experienced librarians who would like to serve as research mentors.
If you have at least 5 years’ experience with research, please consider sharing your knowledge and abilities with others by becoming a mentor. Some of the benefits you might experience as a mentor are: collaborating with mentee librarians with diverse experiences, skills and contacts; and, meeting others who have career goals, interests, and job functions similar to yours. It’s also a great way to give back to the profession if you have benefited from a mentor in the past. Application forms for both research mentors and mentees are located on the MAC/MLA website at: http://macmla.org/committees/rac/index.html .
