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

Holly Smith (Mentor #2018-01)


Reason(s) for wanting to be a mentor:

I have had the fortune of having great mentors (formally and informally) so I want to be a good advocate and source for an early career professional.

As a mentor, I see myself as:

  • Advisor/Counselor
  • Resource

Areas of specialization:

  • Lone Ranger
  • Access/outreach/reference
  • Exhibits

Collecting areas:

  • Academic
  • Manuscripts
  • Visual Resources
  • Special Collections 

I want to help a mentee:

  • 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.
