Call for the ABQLA’s 2017/2018 Professional Partnering Program (PPP)

The SIS students at McGill & the Public Libraries Section of the ABQLA are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2017/2018 Professional Partnering Program (PPP).

The PPP is a flexible mentoring program that connects students in McGill's School of Information Studies with information professionals with similar professional interests.If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form by Friday, September 22nd.

A 5 à 7 will take place on October 4th at the SIS Mansion. You will be notified of your partner by email, in case you can't attend the event.

Please contact Maria at maria.ressina@gmail.com for more information.

What is the time commitment?
There is no specific time commitment from participants. The program will begin with a 5 à 7 to introduce participants to each other; the level of communication and specific activities will be determined by the pair. Activities can include job shadowing, regular e-mail correspondence, job-seeking advice and introductions to other professionals.

What are the benefits for me, as an Information Professional?
This is an opportunity to contribute to the professional development of future colleagues. The program is a great way to share knowledge you have gained over the years, find out what students are learning, reflect on your own career, and participate in the LIS community.
