Advance your career! Advance your profession! Join the ACRL/IS Mentoring Program!

Do you want to share your professional library instruction experience? Do you want to lead and build a relationship with a new colleague? Feel the need for some professional mentoring? Do you feel you need to develop your library instruction skills, methods, and resources more fully? Then consider becoming a mentor or mentee for the 2018-2019 ACRL/IS Mentoring Program!

The purpose of the ACRL Instruction Section Mentoring Program is to contribute to the professional development of academic librarians who teach information literacy by pairing librarians experienced in teaching with librarians new to instruction or to the Instruction Section. Mentors should have a passion for instruction and experience in this field. Mentees should be librarians seeking to improve their instruction skills and knowledge. In order to create mentor/mentee pairs by the beginning of the Fall Semester, we ask that you fill out our online application by September 14, 2018.

ACRL and Instruction Section membership are required to apply.
Mentor applicants, please use this form.
Mentees, please use this form.

This program creates a forum for learning opportunities, networking, and the exchange of ideas between paired mentors and mentees about instruction and information literacy. Conference attendance is not required. In fact, much of the mentoring takes place through online or phone communication.

If you have questions about the ACRL Instruction Section Mentoring Program, please contact the Committee Chair, Bridget Doloresco (, or visit the IS Mentoring Program for more information.
