Mentoring. Library Training Guides Series.
This guide from Library Association Publishing has been designed to assist those wishing to review mentoring for its application to a particular workplace, the library. Often making use of a question and answer format, it discusses the roles of both the mentor and the protege, including potential benefits for each party and behaviors each party should avoid. Essential qualities of a good mentor are outlined. The guide covers formalized mentoring schemes but also acknowledges situations in which informal mentoring or a variation on a formalized scheme might work better. Three chapters feature real-life case studies. Appendices include a bibliography with 62 references, a list of contact people at 11 organizations which use mentoring programs, details about which schemes those organizations chose to implement, and a glossary of 17 terms.
