Clayton State University President Tim Hynes will chair a panel of academics, historians and librarians that will soon put together plans for transferring the Georgia State Archives from the secretary of state's office to the state's public university system.
The State Archives are losing five staff members starting Thursday because of budget cuts from the Secretary of State. But Governor Deal was able to find money to keep the Archives from closing completely. It will be open two days a week. And the plan is to transfer it to the University System of Georgia.
