Program

Mentoring Millennials

Mentoring programs within the library can have a great impact on both new and potential librarians.  While many librarians have personally benefited from mentoring relationships, some argue that the next generation of librarians may not respond to traditional mentoring techniques.  The literature suggests that many of the mentoring tools that worked so well in the past do not seem to resonate with millennial librarians.  For example, traditionally the “baby boomer” generation may have had a few separate mentoring relationships throughout their career whereas the millennial generation may respond better to multiple, simultaneous mentoring relationships.  As the “baby boomer” generation of librarians are preparing for retirement, many millennials are just discovering the field of librarianship.  Research shows that as many as 60% of the “baby boomers” will retire by 2025 taking with them much of their knowledge, training, and experience all of which could be used to help mentor the next generation of successful librarians.

This presentation will discuss the personal impact that mentorship has had on me as a millennial librarian recently entering the field of librarianship.  Also included is a discussion of recent research findings on different types of mentorship relationships and techniques that can be useful for reaching the next generation of librarians.  In conclusion, the presentation will highlight some of the benefits of mentorship, which include using it as a retention tool, a teaching experience for both parties, and an opportunity to motivate continuing education.

Participants need to read the assigned articles in advance of the meeting and come prepared to engage in an interactive discussion.
