LIS Students -- Looking for a Mentor?

I came across the following on a couple of the LIS listservs that I subscribe to. This mentoring opportunity comes from the New Members Round Table (NMRT) divison of ALA. Although the deadline is posted as September 21, they are still accepting applications. ~Kelly

Looking for a Mentor ? We Can Help!

Have you been a librarian for 5 years or less? Do you sometimes feel you have professional questions to ask and no one to direct them to? Do you find yourself wondering, in the midst of hardcore budget season, or in that massive collection development strategy meeting...What the heck are they talking about? Well, through NMRT's Mentoring Committee, help has arrived! Here's your chance to meet a new librarian ally, and to have someone to ask about all those questions you can't really ask!

The NMRT Mentoring Committee will pair up "newbie librarians" with "seasoned vets" as part of our Career Mentoring program that will last from October to July. Conference attendance is not required. Membership in ALA is required, and NMRT membership is encouraged. Applications are due September 21. *** STILL ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

If you are interested in additional information or would like to be paired with a mentor, please complete the online application at http://www.ala.org/ala/nmrt/comm/careerMentoringApplication.htm
