New UGA Libraries Website

Submitted by Deborah on Tue, 01/03/2017

The UGA Libraries now has a new website!

Our goals for this redesign were to reduce clutter, put the things that people use most front and center, and make the site easier to navigate and more visually appealing. If you can't find something that used to be on the homepage, check out the menu at the top of the page, or ask us.

Please check out the site and share your feedback with us.

Media archivists to discuss Foxfire exhibit on GPB

Submitted by Deborah on Fri, 12/09/2016

Mary Miller, with the Walter J. Brown Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection, and Kimberly Ellis, a UGA graduate student in Historic Preservation and student employee in Media, will be guests on GPB’s On Second Thought, a one-hour, daily news talk show that airs at 9 a.m.

Miller and Ellis will be discussing the current “Foxfire: 50 years of Cultural Journalism Documenting Folk Life in the North Georgia Mountains”  exhibit at the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries. Foxfire, a project begun to inspire North Georgia students that gained national attention, illustrates the concept of “experiential learning,” a popular theory in higher education. Ellis curated the exhibit, along with her fellow grad student, Dixie Gallups, as part of their work in the Media Archives and an example of “experiential learning” in action.
