Typical uses may include, but are not limited to, scholarly and other publications, audio/visual and electronic presentations (including programs on Government Channel 8), exhibits, and websites (www.savannahga.gov). Original interview materials will be transferred to the City of Savannah Municipal Archives, where they will be housed and maintained according to accepted archival principles and procedures to ensure both preservation and accessibility to researchers.
