New to IASSIST or Willing to Mentor Someone New? (IASSIST 2017 Conference)

New to IASSIST or Willing to Mentor Someone New?

We are excited to have new members in IASSIST. IASSIST is a home for data services professionals across many disciplines: librarians, data archivists, open data proponents, data support staff, etc. For some, it is an organization where you don’t have to explain what you do because our members already understand. We get metadata, data support, data access issues, database challenges, the challenge of replication and so much more! Although we are a long-established organization, new members are the lifeblood of IASSIST!
Networking is a great benefit of attending the IASSIST conference but the week quickly goes by and and it can be daunting to join a lively group like this. To get the most out of your membership, we encourage everyone to join the IASSIST mentorship program.Please sign up by Friday, May 12 using Google Forms. Conference contact assignments for IASSIST will be emailed by the end of the day Tuesday, May 16.If for any reason the email link does not open for you, go to
