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


Jeremy Katz (Mentor #2017-02)


Reason(s) for wanting to be a mentor:

Throughout my career I have had many influential mentors that have opened significant doors for me. I want to pass this on and pay it forward to the next generation of museum and archives professionals.

As a mentor, I see myself as:

  • Advisor/Counselor
  • Advocate
  • Resource

Areas of specialization:

  • Access/outreach/reference
  • Acquisition
  • Arrangement/Description
  • Cataloging/metadata
  • Exhibits
  • Long Arranger
  • Management/Supervision
  • Preservation

Collecting areas:

  • Audio/moving image
  • Corporate/private
  • Digital/electronic
  • Manuscripts
  • Museums
  • Rare Books
  • Records management
  • Visual resources
  • Oral histories

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.
