Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection ready for Grand Opening!

February 14, 2012 – 12:50 PM

The Walter J. Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection has taken up residence in its new offices at the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library Building. Preparations are underway for the official building dedication ceremonies, scheduled for Friday, February 17, 2012 at 11:00a.m.

2011 found the Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection in a state of transition as we undertook the massive project of  barcoding all of its physical assets for transfer to a new, state-of-the-art storage vault located below the Special Collections Building’s main floors. As a result of these efforts, we are poised to provide unprecedented access to materials not previously available to the campus and research community at-large.

As we continue moving and unpacking in early-2012, we would like to welcome visitors to our newly-designed web site, and invite them to explore the expanded content offerings found there. As well, we have established a YouTube channel on which can be found footage from a wide variety of our collection inventory for your enjoyment.

We look forward to continued service of  the University of Georgia, the people of the state of Georgia, and the community worldwide by maintaining the highest standards of excellence in the curation of this valuable collection of media assets.
