The Georgia Archives Institute ten-day program includes one day of preservation and area archival institutions contribute to the success of the program by providing three-day internships for Institute students.


The Georgia Archives Institute, Inc., is a non-profit organization, administered by a Board of Directors composed of archives professionals.

The annual institute is co-sponsored by the Georgia Archives, the Society of Georgia Archivists, and the Friends of Georgia Archives & History.


Institute participation creates a network of colleagues with similar experiences, contacts with professional archivists, and an overview of a variety of archival organizations.

The Institute enhances the work of those already in the field and provides a foundation for those entering the field.
While they liked my book experience, it was the Institute that
gave me the edge in this difficult period of jobs and the economy.
