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


Derek Mosley (Mentor #2017-03)


 

Reason(s) for wanting to be a mentor:

I would like to encourage diversity not just within the profession, but in collections and outreach. I understand the importance of mentorship and the value it adds to your career.

As a mentor, I see myself as:

  • Advisor/Counselor
  • Resource

Areas of specialization:

  • Access/outreach/reference
  • Arrangement/Description
  • Cataloging/metadata
  • Management/Supervision

Collecting areas:

  • Manuscripts
  • Special Collections
  • African American history

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.
