And Mentoring for All: The KU Libraries' Experience
Ghouse, Nikhat; Church-Duran, Jennifer
Portal: Libraries and the Academy, v8 n4 p373-386 Oct 2008
This article discusses the evolutionary development of a mentoring program that began as a support for pre-tenure librarians and grew to encompass all staff at the University of Kansas Libraries (KU Libraries). Incorporated in this discussion are the trials and successes of a nascent program that has particular emphasis on creating a structure to foster an individualized mentoring plan, initiated by the mentee and tailored by personal goals and objectives. Included also are various definitions of the mentoring relationship, the essential functions and activities of the mentor role, and institutional considerations in program development and growth. (Contains 43 notes.)
