Reference and Research Services
Anyone with an interest in history, including scholars, students, genealogists, and the general public, is encouraged to research the Georgia Historical Society’s collections.
GHS Research Center staff will conduct a reference interview and, if applicable, provide the researcher with relevant finding aids and/or database search results. It is up to the researcher to review the material and make selections. Restrictions on what can be retrieved may apply based on condition, donor restrictions, or other conservation issues. Researchers are assisted by the GHS reference staff for both reference inquiries and photocopy requests. Additionally, the Georgia Historical Society offers appointments for on-site group orientations to using Research Center resources.
