In case you’ve not already been made aware of this situation in Georgia, which was announced yesterday, but Georgia’s Secretary of State has been instructed by the Governor that as a cost-cutting measure the State Archives should be closed to researchers from the general public. (see The Atlantic Journal-Constitution article)
I’ve indicated to SAA and the National Coalition for History among others that MARAC stands ready to support their efforts in overturning this decision. In the meantime, YOU can help by visiting this website and signing the petition. Every voice counts whether from Georgia or archivists from MARAC. Please participate.
