Hargrett Manuscripts and University Archives Close for Move

October 7, 2011 – 3:36 PM

During the fall of 2011, the Hargrett Library will relocate from the Main Library to the new Special Collections Libraries building currently under construction at 300 Hull Street.

As a result of the move, the Historical Manuscripts and University Archives collections will be unavailable for public use for a period of approximately 6-8 weeks effective 5:00pm October 21, 2011.

The Rare Books collection will remain open until approximately November 1, 2011, when it also will close temporarily for relocation.

The Georgiana collection will remain open until approximately November 18, 2011, when it will close temporarily for relocation.

To reduce the impact of the special collections move on researchers, the Libraries will partially open the Special Collections Libraries building in the late fall to provide prearranged access to materials once they have arrived at their new home.

The Special Collections Libraries building plans to open fully to the public with normal service in January 2012.

To inquire about the availability of a specific collection or item during the October-December closings, please contact the Hargrett Library at (706) 542-7123 or Hargrett (at) uga.edu.

Saturday closings: Hargrett has ceased Saturday hours October – December due to the move.
