In 2008, three members of the faculty at the University of Northern Colorado Libraries created a document with the purpose of providing overarching mentoring guidance for their peers. In 2019, a small group of faculty librarians, with input from their colleagues, completely revised the document to create a community-sourced program reflecting the evolution in mentoring philosophies. Attendees of this interactive session should be interested in building a new program or revising a static document into a dynamic mentoring program. You will learn how we used an inclusive process that involved all librarians in our organization and a short-term assessment to evaluate the program and make changes. Our process and materials will be shared in the presentation; attendees are invited to share content and process regarding their own mentoring environment and to bring questions as well.
