GHS Research Center Temporarily Closed for Renovation and Expansion

The Georgia Historical Society Research Center in Savannah is temporarily closed to the public as it undergoes a much-needed renovation and expansion.

Research and image request services are available on a limited basis during this time. On-line resources will continue to be available on the GHS website. The administrative offices located in the Jepson House Education Center will continue to operate on a normal schedule throughout the closure. GHS educational programming and the annual Georgia History Festival will not be affected.

Currently Available on a Limited Basis During Renovation Closure

The Georgia Historical Society offers limited digital reproduction services of materials in its collection. Fee based scanning services are available for materials that can withstand the process. The staff reserve the right to deny scanning requests based on the condition of the materials, copyright concerns, and donor-imposed restrictions. Use fees for images intended for commercial and non-profit purposes will be assessed.

Digital reproduction of oversize documents (items larger than 11×17) are outsourced to The Great Frame Up in Bluffton, SC. Please see staff for pricing.

Please note: without exception, oversize documents will not be photocopied. At this time, GHS will deny requests to take oversize documents to large format photocopy services as machines used can be damaging to documents.

Use of digital cameras is permitted only at the reserved archives and rare book table. Fees apply to this service.

See below for information on ordering digital image reproductions.
