What is an inventory?
The Georgia Archives produces a Descriptive Inventory
(formerly known as “PDI” or “Preliminary Descriptive Inventory”) for each series
in its holdings. Each Descriptive Inventory includes information about which
agency created the series, the date span of the records, what information is
found in the records, a list of volume, box or folder titles in the series (in
most cases), and related information.
Which inventories can be searched here?
In the past, the Descriptive Inventories were produced and
used in hardcopy. Currently, more than 1,700 inventories are available as text
documents in HTML format. Not all of the paper inventories have been converted
to electronic form. Additional searching in hardcopy inventories may be
necessary to complete a comprehensive search.
