Did You Know?
The SLA offers a mentoring program that can help you navigate your career path. Mentors are still available from SLA/Michigan, but only if you act now!

The Special Libraries Association (SLA) is an organization of dynamic and change-oriented information professionals (IPs), who strategically use information in their jobs to advance the mission of the organization. Information organizations (such as libraries, information centers, competitive intelligence units or knowledge resource centers) are defined as those entities that deliver information-based solutions to a given market. IPs develop, deploy, and manage information resources and services, harnessing technology as a critical tool to accomplish goals.

You can be a part of this, just by filling out a simple form at http://units.sla.org/chapter/cmi/mentor.html. Mentors are standing by.

Opportunity is knocking— answer the door!
