Volume 31, Number 1 (2013) Special Issue on AdvocacyIn September 2012, a crisis occurred with the Georgia Archives when the Secretary of State announced that the institution would close to the public on November 1. Immediately, archivists, patrons, legislators, and others rallied to protect the Georgia Archives. Their continued efforts to demonstrate the necessity of keeping the Georgia Archives open made local and national news. This special issue of Provenance documents these events and provides a variety of perspectives on the importance of archival advocacy.
