AJC Newspaper Photograph Exhibit in Library North
SOUTHERN LIGHT: Selections from The Atlanta Journal – Constitution Newspaper Photographic Archives is on display until April 29th, 2011, on the first floor of Georgia State University’s Library North building. The exhibit helps publicize the new database in Special Collections which is searchable by GSU students, faculty and others and which consists of over 76,400 terms representing about 300,000 prints recently donated by the AJC to the Georgia State University Library. Included in this gift are an additional 7 million negatives which will be indexed within the next few years.
The topics displayed (politics, civil rights, buildings, transportation, and sports) represent subjects popular with researchers and newspaper readers.
