Abstract
A recent research study about mentoring in Canadian college and university libraries reveals that new librarians expect to be mentored. Additionally, preferred mentoring activities for all librarians include psychosocial support, career guidance and role modeling. This poster presentation will share the findings from recent MLIS graduates, librarians and library administrators about mentoring experiences and expectations in academic library settings.
