Michelle Reale ’99M Publishes Book on Mentoring

Michelle RealeMost academic libraries could not operate without a host of part-time student workers. But employing students is different from filling a professional position with an experienced worker; often their library employment will be their first job experience.

Since many student positions make them the public face of the library, effective mentoring of such student employees is vital.

Mentoring & Managing Students in the Academic Library, published by ALA Editions, explores the challenges and opportunities involved in recruitment. In this guide, Michelle Reale:

• Shows how a library job can be more than just employment, teaching students important responsibilities and life-skills;
• Covers the entire scope of a student’s tenure at an academic library, from bringing new hires on board and training them to disciplining student employees and the unpleasant but sometimes necessary task of firing;
• Offers mentoring advice for helping students navigate the cultural contrasts, irregular hours, and other day-to-day issues faced by young people away from home for the first time.

Michelle is the Access Services and Outreach Librarian at Landman Library at Arcadia University.
