Continuing Education Survey

STS Sci/Tech Library Mentors
The Professional Development Committee developed and oversees the Sci/Tech Library Mentors, a program which helps new or less experienced librarians identify more experienced science librarians willing to serve as mentors. To learn about what makes a mentoring relationship valuable and successful, we encourage you to visit the Learn about Mentoring link below.
We are always accepting volunteer mentors. To participate, please fill out our Be a Mentor form. If you are interested in being mentored, please fill out our Find a Mentor form. You will then be paired with one of our volunteer mentors.
