Georgia Heritage Room Offers Remote Research Assistance

While the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System remains closed to the public due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the staff of the Georgia Heritage Room have arranged to provide limited services remotely.

We can assist with accessing the Augusta Chronicle digital archives, using Ancestry Library Edition from home (available remotely until libraries reopen  to the public), and searching the Digital Library of Georgia Historic Newspapers website. Any requests requiring look ups in our print and microfilm collections will have to wait until the library reopens. We are available for basic newspaper searches, such as obituaries, and local history articles as well. Please send questions and/or requests to If you have questions about the Galileo password, or your library account password call the Headquarters Library at 706-821-2600. We look forward to seeing our local history and genealogy patrons when the Augusta Public Library reopens. In the meantime, stay healthy and safe.
