Mangrum (People in the News)

Thursday, May 30, 2019 5:02 PM | Carol Green

Sarah Mangrum, access services and assessment librarian at The University of Southern Mississippi, has been selected for the Library Leadership and Management Association’s (LLAMA) mentoring program, a division of the American Library Association.

The mentoring program pairs librarians who are currently in leadership positions with librarians who are interested in becoming leaders. For mentors, it is an opportunity to share experience and knowledge by working one-on-one with a colleague who is ready to learn and benefit from that experience. The mentorship runs for 10 months and includes recurring communication and interaction with the mentee, providing career advice and counseling based on related experience, sharing skills and knowledge, and providing positive feedback through regular meetings that can be virtual, by phone, email or face-to-face.

In addition, Mangrum received her Doctor of Education (EdD) in Higher Education Administration in May 2019. 

Mangrum has been with University Libraries since October of 2008 and a librarian since 2012. She recently served as president of the Mississippi Library Association in 2018.




MLA's mission is to provide professional leadership for the development, promotion, and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.
