I *definitely* would be interested in being mentored. I
think there is a lot of the "business" side of videos and
movies that I just don't understand when I'm trying to
locate videos. I would like to stay a media librarian (my
position did not include these duties originally, I think,
but I was interested and I got it) but I don't know that
there are that many opportunities out there...
