Having effective mentors is important for your professional and personal growth. Many ACRL sections have mentoring and coaching programs to help you get the most from this important relationship. For more information see:

"I joined ACRL as a library school student because I knew I wanted to be an academic librarian and needed job hunting advice. It really helped to have ACRL mentors and to talk to future colleagues at the annual conference. I had a great job lined up before graduation! “ ~ Pearl Ly, ACRL member since 2007
“Programs offered by ACRL have not only contributed to my own professional development, they have also helped me with mentoring younger professionals who are becoming leaders in my library.” ~ Terri Fishel, ACRL member since 1985

Advice and support is also available through the ACRL section discussion lists.
