Archives Alive!

Archives Alive! are archives orientation sessions targeting youth grades 1-12 in order to introduce them to using primary sources.  The programs are designed for teachers who would like to bring their students into City Hall for a field trip, would like to schedule for a City archivist to conduct the program in the classroom, or teachers can use the materials on their own.  To schedule a field trip or in classroom visit with an archivist please contact Kelly Zacovic at Kzacovic@savannahga.gov or (912) 651-4212.

Municipal Archives Orientations

The Municipal Archives offers archival research orientations for high school and college-level classes, student groups, and other adult groups. Participants will learn what the Municipal Archives has to offer and how to utilize those resources, as well as having a hands-on session with highlights from the collections. Orientations last approximately 1.5 hours and can accommodate 5 to 15 participants at a time. Orientations may be tailored to the specific research interests of each group. To schedule an orientation, please contact the Archivist at (912) 651-6412 or email Archives@savannahga.gov.  

The Online Archives Orientation (narrated video) is available for individuals and groups who need an orientation but cannot schedule one before coming in to use the Municipal Archives.  The presentation’s slides are also available for download as a PDF or PowerPoint.
