      Please be aware of this new schedule before planning a trip to the Georgia
      Archives.


      Georgia Archives New Hours


      Effective October 1, 2010 the hours available for public visitation to the
      Georgia Archives will change to Thursday through Saturday 8:30 am to 5:00
      pm. This is an unfortunate action we must take to meet the difficult budget
      environment facing all State Agencies.

      With the reduction in public hours the Archives staff will now be deployed
      to fulfill different functions on different days. When the Archives is open
      to the public, most or all employees will serve the public in the Reference
      Room. When the Archives is closed to the public, most or all of the
      employees will work with state agencies to bring records into the Archives,
      catalog them, and shelve them. To provide better and timelier service for
      research requests outside the core duties of the State Archives, i.e.
      genealogy requests, a list of other sources of information can be provided.
      In this way the Archives will maintain its critical functions with reduced
      staffing.

      Lunch and Learn lectures, normally held on the second Tuesday of each month,
      have been rescheduled (where possible) for the second Thursday of each
      month. Please see the web site for a revised schedule.
