Abstract: This collaborative session will have three parts: First, an overview on the value of mentoring and the variety of mentoring opportunities available to us. Included will be specific information about mentoring in both organizations, and new ideas, approaches and tools that are on the horizon for both VRA and ARLIS/NA.

Next will be two examples of successful mentors and mentees who will discuss their mentoring experience within ARLIS/NA and VRA. The mentor/mentee relationship can forge bonds lasting throughout our professional careers, and they often start with a successful pairing at our conferences.

Finally, a paper on the introduction of a Mentoring Program for librarians at Texas Tech University, detailing the goals and the planning process; the successes and hurdles that were overcome; and how it led to new collaborative opportunities and other growth among the librarians at TTU. Examples will be included of what things worked better than others and how mentoring is a two-way street with rewards at both ends.
