Planning a Research Visit

How Can I Do Research at the Archives?

Access to Research in the Archives is available by appointment only, because we have a limited number of staff. If you do not make an appointment, we cannot guarantee that someone will be available to assist you. The Archives encourages as much availability of records as is consistent with the rights of confidentiality and privacy. However, certain records are “closed” – that is, no access is permitted under normal circumstances. Some are “restricted” and may only be used with the express permission of the Archivist or the Chancellor. Most documents are available for research, once they have been processed.

The Archives reproduces materials under the Fair use provision of the U.S. Copyright Law. The researcher must assume responsibility for obtaining, from the owner of the Copyright, permission for use of the material. Permission to reprint materials which are the property of the Diocese of Savannah must be obtained in writing, and credit must be given.

Due to limited staff we are no longer offering research services into closed collections.
