The Office of Archives and Records, founded in 1992, has been collecting records and unique materials that document the management, organization, and history of the Archdiocese since it was formed out of the Diocese of Savannah in 1956. Its responsibilities encompass not only the supervision of permanent archival records, but also the management of the active and semi-active records of the Archdiocesan offices and agencies.

The mission of the Office of Archives and Records is to collect, preserve, and make available the permanent and official records of the Archdiocese of Atlanta, its people, institutions, and associations. It documents the historical richness, development, and the spiritual, temporal and business affairs of the Catholic Church in North Georgia.

A new initiative began in 2008 to reorganize the Office of Archives and Records in order to offer better access to its resources and to expand its responsibilities. In 2010, the Association of Catholic Diocesan Archivists honored the Archives with the Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Award in recognition for its work in building an exemplary archives and records program.

While primarily serving the administrative needs of the Chancery and assisting parishes with research, preservation, and records management issues, the Office of Archives and Records is also open to the public for scholarly research by appointment.

In 1939, the Coca-Cola Archives was established from a collection of advertising and PR materials that were brought together for trademark litigation where The Company needed to prove constant use of trademark over time. Wilbur Kurtz from the Advertising Department was the first head of Archives, followed by Phil Mooney in 1977 who was the first professionally trained Archivist hired by The Company. Currently, the archives has four team members who all are trained to work with and handle archival materials. The Archives storage space has shelving that if laid end to end would be approximately 2.5 miles long. If the flat files were laid out end to end, it would equal 2 football fields.

Brown Bag Lunches: One Book, One Profession Discussion
One Book, One Profession: Teaching with Primary Sources

Registration required for this Brown Bag lunch discussion. Send email to Abigail Christian and in subject line indicate “TWPS Brown Bag lunch.” The room location will then be sent to you.

What if archivists were all reading the same book at the same time? Join your colleagues in reading, talking about, and building on ideas from Teaching with Primary Sources, one of the latest books in the SAA series Trends in Archives Practice. Teaching with Primary Sources is edited by Christopher J. Prom and Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe and consists of three modules: “Module 9: Contextualizing Archival Literacy” by Elizabeth Yakel and Doris Malkmus; “Module 10: Teaching with Archives—A Guide for Archivists, Librarians, and Educators” by Sammie L. Morris, Tamar Chute, and Ellen Swain; and “Module 11: Connecting Students and Primary Sources—Cases and Examples” by Tamar Chute, Ellen Swain, and Sammie L. Morris. As libraries and archives increasingly provide services in addition to collecting and curating collections, the importance of instructional services also grows. With creativity, variety, and pragmatism, the authors guide readers in understanding what instructors want their students to learn and how to support students in that learning. By sharing their successes—and their struggles—the authors address gaps in the archival literature and the information literacy literature and strengthened these intersecting domains of practice.  You’ll also learn about how you can organize a One Book, One Profession discussion group at your institution or within your local or regional archival association.

Brown Bag Lunches: The American Archivist Article Discussion
" Filling the Gaps’: Oral Histories and Underdocumented Populations in The American Archivist, 1938–2011”

Registration required for this Brown Bag lunch discussion. Send email to Editor Greg Hunter and in subject line indicate “American Archivist Brown Bag lunch.” The PDF of the article along with the room location will then be sent to you.

Be among the first to read this forthcoming article in the Fall/Winter 2016 issue of The American Archivist: "‘Filling the Gaps’: Oral Histories and Underdocumented Populations in The American Archivist, 1938–2011” by Jessica Wagner Webster. During the 1970s and 1980s, archivists and historians discussed, in their literature, the ways that oral histories could be used to fill in the documentary record with stories from all parts of society, not just stories from white men of means, whose stories often were retained as part of business, government, and university records. This article analyzes pieces from The American Archivist to determine how frequently archivists actually published about using oral history techniques to document people of color, women, the working class, and other consistently underdocumented populations.

Open Forums: Advocacy: The Georgia Archives Experience
Four years ago, news of the impending closure of the Georgia Archives galvanized the profession and local, state, and national organizations mobilized their resources to mitigate this worst-case scenario. Join us for an interactive discussion with activists in the “counter-closure movement” who will share their perspectives on how the profession was able to roll back this decision. We’ll explore what worked well, what tactics were less successful, and how SAA and CoSA – as member-driven organizations – can best respond to future public policy challenges.

Open Forums: SAA Diversity Committee
The Right to Dis-Remember: Contested Spaces of Memory through Public History and Archives

The removal of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina State House and public statutes and the recent renaming of college dormitories on campuses highlight the complex ways in which monuments and memorials frame public history. Panelists discuss the various ways in which different stakeholders (e.g., public and city officials, public and private institutions, and archives) craft public memorials for very different purposes and how diverse (and often marginalized) communities often craft counter narratives to the ways historical events and places are publicly celebrated. (Sponsored by the SAA Diversity Committee; panelists to be announced.)
