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


Gabrielle M. Dudley (Mentor #2017-01)



Reason(s) for wanting to be a mentor:

I have been very fortunate to have had formal and informal mentors my entire life. I love talking with people – students especially – about how to navigate the archives profession and being an SGA mentor will help me do that in a more formal way. 

Is there any other information about your career or yourself that you would like to share with potential mentees?

I enjoy helping people prepare for the  job hunting process - resumes and cover letters editing and prepping for interviews. Additionally, I am very passionate about recruiting and retaining people of color within the archives profession.

As a mentor, I see myself as:

  • Advisor/Counselor
  • Advocate
  • Resource
  • Teacher

Areas of specialization:

  • Access/outreach/reference
  • Instruction

Collecting areas:

  • African American collections
  • 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.
