Researcher Forum at the National Archives at Atlanta

 Researcher Forum at the National Archives at Atlanta
Friday, October 26, 2012
10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

National Archives at Atlanta
5780 Jonesboro Road
Morrow, GA 30260
770 968-2100

Effective October 1, 2012, the National Archives at Atlanta changed their hours of operation.  Instead of opening each Saturday, NARA-Atlanta is only open on the 3rd Saturday of each month.  The new hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM and the 3rd Saturday of each month, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. They are closed on holidays.  This change was made without any input from the patrons/researchers.  This change in Saturday hours will have a critical impact on our meetings, as well as public programs and research needs.

You are invited to attend a Research Forum at the National Archives to voice your concerns and learn of updates to services for researchers.  This forum will be hosted by Robert Richards, Director of Archival Operations, Atlanta and Bill Mayer, Executive for Research Services, NARA - Washington, D.C., and other staff.

The forum highlights include:

(1)  Meeting Bill Mayer and other NARA staff,
(2)  Finding out news and updates about services for researchers,
(3)  Q & A session where patrons/researchers can tell NARA-ATL what their needs are.

Please attend this important forum if you are concerned about the change of hours, research services, and public programs. Your voice counts!
