Hours and holidays: Wednesday through Saturday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
Due to state budget cuts, hours have been continuously cut back, beginning in October 2010, with the latest cuts occurring in July 2011.  As of July 1, 2013, the Georgia Archives was transferred to the University System of Georgia, which helped ease budgetary concerns. 
Directions, maps, and public transportation: From anywhere in Metro Atlanta, take I-285 to exit 55, Jonesboro Road. From the east, turn left; from the west, turn right onto Jonesboro Road. Drive about 4 miles and the Archive will be on your left, just after Harper Drive. The Georgia Archive shares a parking lot with the National Archive's Southeast branch and is the building on the right.
Internet sites and databases:
Due to restricted hours, microfilm readers with computers and printers attached are in high demand. Users may have to wait or sign up in advance for the machines and will likely be limited to an hour's use at a time. Numerous older, hand crank machines are available, though less sought after.
