Since June 2012, CALA Mentorship Committee accomplished the following activities (for committee’s previous work, please refer to the 2012 Year Report):

  • Mentorship Program was promoted at CALA ALA annual Conference. We therefore received one more mentee application and matched the mentor and mentee based on their educational backgrounds, working experiences, research interests, job expectations, current job titles and positions, and geographic locations.
  • Totally four mentees were all assigned a mentor.

After Mid-Winter ALA conference, the Committee will:


  • Collect the reports from mentees and mentors.
  • Conduct a survey among CALA members to find out how to improve the mentorship program.
  • Use the feedback from the mentee/mentor reports and surveys to provide recommendations to the next Mentorship Committee.
