National Archives Breaks Ground in Georgia #general


Howard Margol
 

The National Archives and Records Administration will have a nice new
regional building to search census, military and immigration records by
summer 2004. On Monday, August 26 officials broke ground for the new
Southeast Archives facility in Morrow, adjoining Clayton College and State
University. Morrow is just south of Atlanta, Georgia. The facility will be
one of the largest of its kind in the country. It will replace the current
facility in East Point, Ga. The NARA building will share a 19-acre complex
with a new Georgia Department of Archives and History facility. The
complex will include a visitor learning & welcome center, an amphitheater,
a large multifunctional reception & lobby space and a research wing. The
Microfilm Research Room will house up to 60 microfilm readers and 66 film
cabinets, as well as microfiche readers and copy stations. The research
wing will allow researchers to search the Archives' online catalog and
access future Electronic Records.
