Oregon Heritage MentorCorps

The MentorCorps is a trained group of volunteers with professional experience in collections care, emergency management, and non-profit management. Its members are ready to help your organization get the training and tools it needs to get the job done.

Mentors can visit in person or provide assistance electronically or by phone. Some of the ways mentors can help include (but are not limited to!):

  • A collection assessment to help prioritize collection needs and projects
  • Staff/volunteer trainings on collection care basics, board roles and responsibilities, specific types of collections, volunteer recruitment, digitization, and more
  • Provide advice and resources for specific projects
  • Lend out equipment inlcuding temperature and humidity dataloggers, light meters, and PastPerfect training cds and manual

Mentors work with organizations in their region of the state. All nonprofit and government archives, libraries and museums can access the free service.
