Mentor Library

As a PRISM faculty mentor, the guidance and support you provide to your students will last long after they graduate from John Jay.  To support your continued commitment to our student researchers, we have gathered a broad range of mentoring materials which are housed in the PRISM office. Stop by anytime to peruse or borrow these resources.  If you do not find what you are looking for or have a suggested resource, please contact Dr. Sanabria-Valentin, PRISM Coordinator.

Listed below are some of the books available in the PRISM office.  Farther down is a  list of digital resources we recommend.
