Georgia Government Publications in GALILEO

Georgia Government Publications

From GALILEO, an announcement about a re-design of the Georgia Government Publications site.  This is also a good reminder about the resource, which has documents up through October 2009.

The Digital Library of Georgia is pleased to present the redesign of the Georgia Government Publications database at:

Developed in 1996 as GALILEO’s first digital conversion initiative, the Georgia Government Publications database contains born-digital publications and scanned print documents produced by Georgia state agencies. The GGP provides a comprehensive repository of state publications 1994 to the present, and project participants are actively scanning documents printed before 1994 to provide researchers with a valuable source for online historical research.

The Georgia Government Publications (GGP) database consists of over 44,000 documents produced by 100 Georgia state agencies. Georgia agencies are required by law to submit print and electronic publications that they produce for the public to the official depository at the University of Georgia Libraries. These publications are all included in the GGP, which features such publications as Guide to Alligator Hunting in Georgia, Members of the General Assembly of Georgia, rack cards on the Georgia state parks, images of Georgia’s song birds from the Traveling Songsters poster, and thousands of other items generated by Georgia’s executive branch of government.

The Georgia Government Publications database is part of the Digital Library of Georgia, a GALILEO initiative.
