A Look Inside Georgia’s Virtual Vault
From the Council of State Archivists:
The Georgia Archives, established by the General Assembly in 1918 under the auspices of the State Historical Commission, now functions as a unit within the University System of Georgia and moved to its current Morrow, Georgia home in 2003. The Archives collects and preserves the state’s official and historical documentary record and provides online access to some of its most intrinsically valuable items through Georgia’s Virtual Vault, a CONTENTdm-supported portal located on the Archives website. The Vault holds more than 1.6 million images of manuscripts, photographs, maps, and government records dating from 1733 to the present. The Georgia Archives marks its centennial this year with a variety of public events and educational projects, including presentation of the digitized World War I Casualties Scrapbooks Collection on Georgia’s Virtual Vault.
