Mentorship Committee: About Us

What We Do

Our committee was established in summer of 2021.

Our charge:

  •  Define the scope of ALI mentorship. 
  • Recommend mentoring pathways and strategies for keeping members, prospective librarians, and other associates informed of ALI’s activities, initiatives, and opportunities for involvement. 
  • Create a structure to help manage and assess the ongoing opportunities within the mentoring spectrum. 
  • Establish a process for ongoing evaluation of the program (i.e. regular feedback from mentees and mentors, the process of establishing matches, committee member(s) identified as a point of contact for participants in the program.) 

Want to Join?

Come join us! The ALI Mentorship Committee always welcomes new members and we accept new members on a rolling basis. We are an active committee that usually meets once a month during the academic year and we work to provide mentorship opportunities and professional development to ALI members through open chats, maintaining a skills directory, and facilitate peer mentorship circles! We welcome any interested ALI member (early career, new to Indiana, tenured/tenured-track, staff, etc.) and you do not have to have any prior mentoring experience.  

If you’re looking for a way to get involved with ALI or want to engage with mentorship in any capacity, we highly encourage you to give our committee a chance! If interested or if you have any additional questions, please reach out to current chair Beth South at eabrockm@iu.edu
