Congratulations to 2017 CILIP Mentor of the Year Alison Bogle, Library Services Manager for The Health Management Library - part of NHS National Services Scotland.


The award

Every year CILIP seeks nominations for Mentor of the Year,  based on the experiences of mentees who are receiving support from a mentor to expand their knowledge and skills within the library and information sector.

CILIP has over 300 mentors who actively share their time and knowledge to support the career development of others who want to improve their skills and experience.

Advice, support and having a critical friend can make a real difference to your career, from applying for your first job, to taking high-level strategic decisions. CILIP has over 300 mentors who actively share their time and knowledge to support the career development and skills of others. For our mentors, it a chance to share their wisdom and shape their sector.

Every year CILIP seeks nominations for Mentor of the Year, from mentees who are receiving support from a CILIP mentor to expand their knowledge and skills within the library and information sector. 

The next round of nominations is open until the end of July 2018. We have called for nominations from anyone receiving support from a mentor who has helped, inspired and guided you; and made a positive impact on your personal and professional development.

 

What do we look for?

Someone who:

  • is approachable and accessible
  • values and respects their mentees’ professional views
  • is willing to share the breadth of professional knowledge and understanding they have gained from their experiences across the library and information community
  • is helping or has helped their mentee to develop the confidence to understand and deal with professional challenges.

Nominees must be current CILIP members, and currently registered as a CILIP mentor.  

The award is judged by a panel that will include a representative of CILIP's Professional Development Group and a previous winner of the Mentor of the Year award.
