The Genealogical and Archives has one of the most outstanding reference collections of its type in the South, with more than 23,000 volumes and over 17,000 microforms. Last year, over 13,000 researchers came from 38 states and five foreign countries to use the facility. Open Mon 9-9; Fri-Sat 9-6. The collection also includes an outstanding foreign collection of items from England, Scotland, and Wales. In June, the Middle Georgia Archives will begin a digitization project thanks to funding from the Knight Foundation. Patrons can bring images into the library and they will be scanned, entered into in our permanent collection, returned to the patron along with their own scanned image.
