A Tale of Informal Peer Mentoring

When talking with Craig and Hu about unexpected mentoring (see our collaborative post here or Craig’s post about his unexpected reverse mentoring experience with his student assistants here), we discussed other ways we’ve been mentored and the topic of peer mentorship was brought up. I couldn’t help but think of Morgan and I’s relationship and... more

Summer @ LILLY Conference

Recently I attended my first LILLY Conference. This conference, hosted by the International Teaching Learning Cooperative, is focused on evidence-based teaching and is one of multiple that they host in various locations around the USA every year.

Getting to be... more

Spring had come to Athens when a few dozen intrepid business librarians convened for the first-ever Southern Academic Business Librarians Conference (SOUCABL, pronounced “sociable”) on the last weekend in March. SOUCABL was intended to be ‘an affordable opportunity for librarians to discuss business librarianship and to network with other librarians in the region,’ in my... more
