Georgia Public Library Service is a proud co-sponsor of Georgia Archives Month. Since 2006, Archives Month has given the profession an opportunity to tell (or remind) people that items that are important to them are being preserved, cataloged, cared for, and made accessible by archivists and librarians. 

Use these resources to promote the value of archives and local history collections.
