Researching unique materials from our library can be exciting, like excavating history from a vault of twentieth century secrets. Sometimes however it’s difficult for researchers to find a way to make their schedule fit with ours, whether they’re already at Georgia State or travelling from out-of-town. Our mission is to make resources as accessible as possible for our users. Therefore, the Special Collections and Archives of Georgia State University Library are extending their hours for researchers, beginning on Monday, February 6. New hours are as follows:
- Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Saturday from 12 noon to 6:00 pm.
- Other times may be arranged by appointment.
- Note: If you are not affiliated with Georgia State University, or either a University System of Georgia or ARCHE school please review our Access Policy to see if you need advance written permission for access. To make arrangements, call 404-413-2880 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Special Collections and Archives of Georgia State University Library collects and preserves unique and rare historical materials in selected subject areas. The department promotes the use of these materials by the Georgia State University community, scholars and the public. Its goal is to advance scholarship and to further the educational, research and service missions of the university.
The eight curatorial areas are: Southern Labor Archives, Popular Music and Culture Collection, Women’s Collections, Georgia Government Documentation Project, Social Change Collection, University Archives, Rare Books, and Photographic Collections. Many of these collections are digitized and available online. Check before visiting our location or contact an archivist for further information.
