The wide variety of the collected visual images results from efforts by archivists from the Georgia Division of Archives and History who sought, between 1975 and 1996, to preserve Georgia's endangered historical photographs. Gathered through a special project to find and copy photographs that individuals presented to archivists at public sessions, the images in Vanishing Georgia were created from the original photographs. The original photographs were returned to the donors at the collection site. In essence, the Vanishing Georgia negatives housed at the Georgia Archives represent photographs of photographs.
Just passed 60,000 items- Developed in 1996 as GALILEO's first digital conversion initiative and redesigned in 2009, theGeorgia Government Publications (GGP) database serves as a digital repository of over 60,000documents and publications released by agencies of Georgia's executive branch.- The Georgia Government Publications (GGP) database consists of over 60,000 documents produced by Georgia state agencies. The majority of the documents are scanned images; however, with the passing of an amendment to the law (O.C.G.A. 20-5-2) in 2000 requiring state agencies to submit publications in electronic format a greater percentage of searchable pdf files are included in the database and are noted as electronic text. Georgia state agencies are required by law to submit publications that they produce for the public to the official depository at the University of Georgia Libraries.
