Round-up for September 2013

A couple of days overdue on the September monthly review post, this round-up post has snuck into October instead.

The discussions sparked off by the series of posts about #mentoring have been great.

There’s plenty more discussions to be had to build on initial ideas – investigating the place of formal vs. informal mentoring, mentoring up & down, creating wider support networks for new grads, creating stronger support networks for first-time submitters for publication. It’s also sparked off ideas of how different approaches to mentoring might suit our diverse GLAM communities, and how we can make that happen.

I’m in the process of putting together my application to join up as a mentor for LIANZA’s formal mentoring programme – fingers crossed I will be accepted, and also that some new grads might actually want me as a mentor!

I’ve really enjoyed the conversations that these #mentoring discussions has sparked, & I’ve made new connections as a result. #win
