    Abstract:
    The Georgia Archives seeks to expand upon energy saving measures initiated over the past two years by updating and further automating the heating ventilation air conditioning system (HVAC), updating lighting in the research library and original documents reading room, and recommissioning the HVAC system. The fundamental goals of the project are to increase energy saving efforts established by the Archives??? environmental management team, continue to maintain a preservation environment that provides for the best possible conditions for the permanent storage of nearly three centuries of historical records with the least possible consumption of energy, while gathering and disseminating data that will be of use to other cultural organizations who undertake similar projects.
    Notes:
    An implementation project to upgrade environmental control and lighting systems to improve energy efficiency and reduce costs, while improving preservation environments for government records and manuscripts documenting nearly three centuries of Georgia's history and culture.
