At today’s Lunch and Learn program, Georgia Archives Director Christopher Davidson announced that the Archives will be adding staff, increasing hours for part-time employees and, yes, opening to the public for two additional days per week.

Here are the highlights:

  • Hiring three additional professionals
  • Increasing part-time staff hours
  • Opening to the public on Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning July 31. Weekly hours will be Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Increasing conservation and processing activities of the Archives collections

The Archives will report to Steve Wrigley, Executive Vice Chancellor Administration, of the University System of Georgia.

Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who helped make this happen, as well as Gov. Nathan Deal and the members of the Georgia legislature.
