abstract
The Z. Smith Reynolds Library (ZSR) launched a formal librarian mentoring program in July 2009. A mentoring committee was appointed and charged with developing a program to offer different types of mentoring opportunities. As the committee brainstormed about how to structure the mentoring program, it became clear that a variety of different approaches would be needed to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and expertise between mentors and mentees. Like many organizations, ZSR uses the traditional one-on-one mentoring model to pair senior or seasoned librarians with new librarians. It also pairs mentees with mentors who have expertise in areas such as library instruction, collection development, service, and publishing. Additionally, the mentoring committee incorporates collaborative peer mentoring into the program. This approach promotes a sense of community among faculty librarians by creating multiple opportunities for faculty to engage with one another.
