MetadataShow full item record
"Are you a librarian mentoring students? Do you feel unprepared or surprised by the development of the mentoring relationship? While there is a rich body of scholarship describing the benefits of a teacher as a mentor for students, and librarian to librarian mentorship (peer mentorship), there is a gap in the literature regarding librarians as mentors for students. This interactive presentation will discuss the development of a librarian mentor, the different mentoring needs of students in terms of support and academic/professional guidance, and strategies for sustaining the relationship with students post-graduation.
