Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mentoring is crucial to the development of both new librarians and those changing direction in the field. Librarians as Mentors In Librarianship for Adults and Students tells how experienced professionals in a variety of settings have succeeded in developing the skills of newcomers in all types of libraries, and offers techniques to help ensure the success of your new hires, students and other mentees." --Jeri Cohen, Assistant Department Head, Young Adult/Audiovisual Services Department, Patchogue-Medford Library, NY

"This anthology is a valuable resource for those considering entering into a mentoring relationship. These articles provide insight into what is expected from both mentor and mentee and how to structure a mentorship based on the needs of both parties." --Heather Zabriskie, Youth Programs Coordinator, Orange County Library System, Orlando, Florida; 2010 Florida Library of the Year

"A practitioner-based profession which requires continuous on-the-job training and skills upgrading, librarianship truly needs strong mentors for its continued success in the 21st century. This book will be an important resource for both new and experienced librarians in any stage of their careers." --Allan Cho, University of British Columbia Library, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

"Librarians as Mentors in Librarianship for Adults and Students is an excellent collection of what works on all aspects of mentoring." --Regina Koury, Electronic Resources Librarian, Idaho State University

"A successful career in a chosen profession or vocation is often dependent upon the guidance of a positive and supportive mentor. Librarians as Mentors in Librarianship for Adults and Students demonstrates the varied ways and approaches to mentoring, which will assist those who have considered mentoring but have yet committed to the role." --Allison Quam, Public Services Coordinator, Winona State University, Winona, MN
