Call for Mentors, 2016/2017 Professional Partnering Program (PPP)

Call for Mentors

The SIS students at McGill & the Public Libraries Section of the ABQLA are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2016/2017 Professional Partnering Program (PPP).

The PPP is a flexible mentoring program that connects students in McGill's School of Information Studies with information professionals with similar professional interests.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out this online form by October 9.

A 5 à 7 will take place on October 19 at the SIS Mansion. You will be notified of your partner by email, in case you can't attend the event.

Contact Zile at for more information.

What is the time commitment?
There is no specific time commitment from participants. The program will begin with a 5 à 7 to introduce participants to each other; the level of communication and specific activities will be determined by the pair. Activities can include job shadowing, regular e-mail correspondence, job-seeking advice and introductions to other professionals.

What are the benefits for me, as an Information Professional?
This is an opportunity to contribute to the professional development of future colleagues. The program is a great way to share knowledge you have gained over the years, find out what students are learning, reflect on your own career, and participate in the LIS community.
