Society of Georgia ArchivistsPreserving the past and present for the future.

Carrie Hintz (Mentor #2017-04)


Reason(s) for wanting to be a mentor:

Throughout my career I have had the chance to work with and learn from colleagues and mentors who have challenged my thinking, opened doors, and pushed me personally and professionally. Knowing firsthand how powerful a strong professional network can be, I want to share that with newer professionals.

As a mentor, I see myself as:

  • Advisor/Counselor
  • Resource

Areas of specialization:

  • Arrangement/Description
  • Cataloging/metadata
  • Management/Supervision

Collecting areas:

  • Academic
  • Digital/electronic
  • Manuscripts
  • Rare books
  • Special Collections 

I want to help a mentee:

  • Expand their core knowledge of professional issues, archival standards, best-practices, etc.
  • Feel more a part of or connected to the professional community and SGA
  • By providing advice related to building and navigating professional relationships (with supervisors, direct reports, co-workers, peers, etc.)
  • By providing assistance with a specific goal (such as project, publication, presentation, grant submission, etc.)
  • By assisting with the job search process by reviewing cover letters and resumes and helping to prepare for interviews.
