MDMLG Mentor Program
In MDMLG's ongoing efforts to expand its outreach program, we are forming a formal mentor program. The program will pair a current library & information science school student, recent graduate, or any individual looking to enter medical librarianship with a practicing health sciences/medical librarian and aims to introduce mentees to the field and MDMLG as a professional organization. Mentees could benefit from the program in a variety of ways, including access to experiential learning opportunities (practicums, volunteer experiences, interviews or shadowing for coursework, etc), career advice, and the establishment of a long-term mentoring relationship with a professional librarian.

We are seeking MDMLG members who are willing to serve as mentors as well as interested students, recent graduates, or other individuals who would like to participate as mentees. The length of the mentor-mentee relationship will vary based on the needs of the mentee. For students, it is expected to span the duration of the mentee’s LIS program and the first three years of the mentee’s first professional health sciences librarian job.

ELIGIBILITY:
-- For mentors: Any MDMLG member with at least 5 years of work experience. (Mentors will be recognized with a mentor certificate at the annul MDMLG Summer Luncheon and General Business Meeting.)
-- For mentees: Any interested library information science student, recent graduate, or individual who wishes to enter health sciences librarianship

If you have any questions about the mentor program, please contact Elizabeth Bucciarelli (ebucciare@emich.edu) or Jennifer Bowen (bowenji@udmercy.edu), co-chairs of the MDMLG Outreach Ad Hoc Committee.
