Notes

Abstract: Assessment is a crucial element of a mentoring program because it can provide the information needed to determine how well the program is meeting its goals and how it could be improved. A continuous cycle of assessment will strengthen a mentoring program and contribute to the professional growth and success of participants. Assessment also gains the support of the library administration in terms of funding, time allowed for participants, and credit given to mentors during annual evaluation. Based on a review of literature, the assessment of most mentoring programs is limited to participant satisfaction. While this measure could be used to predict future participation, as well as to modify elements to address areas of dissatisfaction, it is limited in its scope. There is often little attempt to determine the impact of the program on the participants’ abilities, skills, and future careers. In this session, researchers will share their experiences in assessing a mentoring program for librarians in a large academic library. Assessment measures address the goals of the mentoring program, which include improving mentoring competencies, increasing confidence of participants and expanding future participation in the mentoring program.
