June Seminar - Mentor/Mentee Relationships in Law Libraries (Note: Change of Venue)
Guest speakers Debbie Millward & Shannon Cheng will be doing a seminar on the topic of mentoring in a law library. With a focus on the what, why, and who of being a mentor/mentee, this seminar will cover what newer members looking for advice might ask, how experienced members can give back to the profession, or ideas for mid-career members contemplating a job change.
Debbie Millward joined Lawson Lundell in 2014 as manager of information resources, after a contract position as library manager at McMillan. Her experience prior to law libraries was at the Vancouver Sun and The Province, where she managed the news research library. Debbie’s background as a mentor comes from over 20 years as a practicum host, from teaching library students at UBC and Langara, and serving on committees and the executives of SLA and VALL. Most recently, she was a BCLA mentor for SLAIS student Shannon Cheng.
Shannon Cheng began her Master of Library and Information Studies at the University of British Columbia in September 2014. With a background in sociology and insurance, she wanted to learn more about libraries and information as a professional field. As a mentee to Debbie, Shannon gained greater insight into the field, while developing a lasting professional relationship.
