Fwd: Cataloging Mentoring Program Lai-Ying Hsiung 29 Jan 2004 22:56 UTC

Please post the following message for ALA ALCTS CETRC.  Thanks.

>>The ALCTS Committee on Education, Training and Recruitment (CETRC) for
>>Catalogers is sponsoring a mentoring program for MLIS students and recent
>>graduates who have expressed an interest in cataloging. The Mentoring
>>Sub-Committee is putting out a call for potential mentors. We expect to
>>begin matching mentors and mentees this spring; the mentoring commitment
>>would be for one year. Each mentor/mentee pair will be assigned a liaison
>>who is a member of CETRC to help facilitate the process.
>>The nature of the mentoring relationship can be determined by each pair;
>>whether the focus is on creating a resume and interviewing for cataloging
>>jobs, or about specific cataloging skills, or ideas for research and
>>exploration. Primary contact will be by e-mail, though if geographically
>>viable, in-person meetings might be arranged.
>>Please take a look at the website at http://library.ucsc.edu/mentoring/
>>and, if you are interested in participating, fill out an application at
>>http://qt.library.ucsc.edu:591/ (a link to the form is also available on
>>the mentoring site). And please let me know if you have any questions
>>about the program.
