  • 1.  SAA Mentors Needed!

    Posted Jun 07, 2021 04:06 PM

    Dear colleagues,


    The Society of American Archivists' Mentoring Program is currently seeking additional mentoring volunteers! The Mentoring Program connects participants with shared interests in various aspects of the archival profession. The goal is to cultivate career development and communication between members with areas of expertise and members who want to build their knowledge within those areas.


    Think you don't have any expertise to share? Some of our colleagues waiting for mentors are just getting started in the profession and are looking for advice on schools, classes, career trajectory, resume development and interviewing skills.


    We currently have people waiting for mentors who may have some of the following qualities:

    • Academic libraries/archives
    • Archival processing
    • Business/corporate archives
    • Collection management
    • Government archives
    • Digital preservation
    • Job search
    • Metadata and description
    • Network building
    • Professional development
    • Supervision and management
    Please consider signing up to be a mentor by submitting this application (click on "Apply to be a mentor").

    Thank you for your consideration,


    Lexy deGraffenreid
