In a post on the ACRL Insider, David Connolly (ACRL) announced an opportunity for librarians to mentor a member of this year’s major cohort ALA Spectrum Scholar through the ACRL Dr. E.J. Josey Spectrum Scholar Mentor Program. Mentors will be responsible for:
- contacting the Spectrum Scholar on a regular basis (averaging at least once a month is ideal).
- meeting with the Spectrum Scholar at library conferences when you are both are in attendance.
- responding to brief assessment surveys during the first year of your mentorship.
Mentors and mentees will be paired beginning in April; interested mentors are encouraged to apply by April 15 . Full requirements and details are available in the announcement.
