As part of a long-term plan to keep the State Archives open, the General Assembly has approved transferring the research and records facility from the Secretary of State’s office to the University System of Georgia. Governor Nathan Deal is expected to sign the legislation. The transfer would be official July first.
This week a panel of academics, historians and librarians will send recommendations to the university system chancellor on how the transfer should work. Clayton State University President Tim Hynes chairs that panel and he joined GPB's Ellen Reinhardt to talk about the transfer.
