Recruits new members for the association, assists in maintaining a current and accurate membership list, and provides information on all matters relating to membership. This is a new ad hoc committee (formed in 2014).
Seeks to pair experienced librarians with newcomers to the field and offers an opportunity for members who have experience with a project, activity, or organization to share their knowledge with a member encountering a new situation. Both mentors and mentees will benefit from cultivating valuable new collegial relationships: mentees can grow professionally by gaining access to the experience and support of others, and mentors can grow by reflecting on and sharing their experiences. In addition, participation in the mentorship program may help meet some of the requirements for MLA AHIP points. To participate in the program, a candidate for mentor or mentee must be a member of HealthLINE.
