Mentoring Committee

We pair experienced librarians with UC San Diego students and staff who are interested in academic librarianship. You’ll get an inside look at the profession, including more about degree requirements and career options. Also look here for exciting speakers and programs that will help you prepare for the profession and your future in academic libraries.


  1. Create a venue through which formal and informal mentoring relationships are fostered, allowing primarily Library staff and student employees interested in a career in libraries to observe, interact, and receive support and feedback from appropriate mentors.
  2. Identify, compile, and make available resources that lend support to the pursuit of a career in libraries.
  3. The committee shall support the UC San Diego Library Internship Program and monitor disbursement of all funds made available for the administration of the program.
