Mentoring relationships have long been opportunities to gain trusted insight into our careers, aspirations, and daily lives from those in more experienced positions. Successful mentoring may take a variety of forms, but all require the active participation of individuals to nurture and focus their aspirations towards tangible goals through mindful reciprocal relationship building. We aim to provide resources and information to allow others in the Harvard library and archival community to seek and establish mentoring relationships, to be inspired by thoughtful goal setting and network building, and to be resilient during times of change.
Designed to facilitate communication and to cultivate career development between archival generations, SAA's mentoring program brings together members with expertise in subjects and members who want to build their knowledge within those subject areas. Students, educators, working archivists, records managers, and retirees—every SAA member is eligible to participate as a mentor or mentee.
The program assists students by providing insights into competencies required in various professional areas, assessing current skill sets and suggesting possible projects and activities for enhancements, and setting up the beginnings of a professional network.
