Mercer University maintains a library and archives of primary and secondary resources related to university history and to Baptists in Georgia. We are currently open to Mercer patrons only and are located on the third floor of Mercer University's Tarver Library on the Macon, Georgia, campus. We strongly suggest that you contact the archives before you visit. This will enable us to retrieve the materials you need in advance and ensure that the department is open. Another way of doing this is to make an appointment.

Hours for Mercer Patrons

9 am – Noon and 1 – 5 pm 
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 
(except for university holidays)

At other times, researchers may leave messages at 478-301-2968 or contact us via email (archives@mercer.edu).
