S4. Mentoring New Archivists: An Open Exchange Conference sessions designed for new archivists can sometimes lack sufficient perspective or attendance from more seasoned peers. In this session, we bring together new and experienced archivists for an exchange of advice and ideas. A panel of archivists from a variety of institutions and backgrounds will offer prepared remarks on topics such as “what I wish I’d known” and “the best advice I ever got” before opening it up to questions from attendees. There will also be an opportunity for new archivists to submit questions in advance—watch the MARAC Blog for more information! Finally, the panelists will lead breakout sessions in which new archivists can ask questions in a smaller setting and experienced attendees can share their own advice.

Moderator: Sarah Denison, Delaware Public Archives

Panelists: Lloyd A. Beers, National Archives and Records Administration; Emily R. Cottle, The Winthrop Group; Lynn Eaton, James Madison University; and Brigette C. Kamsler, Columbia University
