The On-boarding, Training and Mentoring Coordinator (OTM), Rebecca Quintus (University of Findlay), is available to pair new OPAL library staff or those new to a position or project with an experienced library staff member who performs comparable tasks, for peer sharing and mentoring. Because of the unique needs of OPAL members, our mentoring program is less structured and more flexible. This allows us to provide a more customized approach. Want a short term arrangement, several perspectives, online, in-person? It's all possible.
