Communications

Now that you’ve been assigned a fellow peer mentor, what should your meetings look like?

Create an end goal for your peer mentorship, whether that be a blog post, a collaboration between your school and their library, or something else entirely. Make your meetings count towards that goal, and talk about your experiences at work.

  • Blog for us on the Connecting Librarians blog

    • Please submit posts to irrt.mentorship@gmail.com  

    • Blog post requirements:

      • Location

      • Type of library

      • All blogs should be a minimum of 500 words

  • Icebreaker topics here or here

  • Talk in between meetings on our Slack channel

  • Remember it’s a relationship, not a transaction

  • Set SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound)

  • Have fun!

Remember that mentors should ideally meet once a week and talk through email or Slack in between. If any questions arise, you can bring it up on the Slack channel or by emailing the program here.
