Welcome to alimb!

The goal of alimb (archives, library, and information mentor base) is to help connect new members of GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) professions with experienced, helpful mentors.

If you’re a new member of a GLAM profession

  • Use this resource to find and contact any GLAM professional who is willing to help with any area for which you have questions!
  • To get started, use the left sidebar to:
    • filter for GLAM professionals by category
    • search by name, interests, or any other data we have

If you’re a GLAM professional who wants to help

  • We encourage anyone who has wisdom to share to add their name to our list (yes, this means you!)
  • For instructions on how to add / update your contact information in our registry, check out the help page.
