This panel will consider library and archives mentorship programs from both the mentor and mentee perspective. Panelists will discuss their experience with both informal and formal mentoring programs occurring within professional organizations and at different types of institutions, including archives and special collections, public, school, and academic libraries. Panelists will focus on a breadth of mentoring relationships, including those with staff, paraprofessionals, teachers, administrators, peers, colleagues, and continuing education opportunities with students. Discussions may include the challenges and opportunities that come from mentoring across generations, gender, age, geographic distance, and at different points within a career. Panelists will provide tips on how to assess the success of mentoring relationships, how to develop shared goals and understanding, useful forms and other materials, and how to make these relationships successful for both the mentor and mentee.
