Georgia Government Publications database

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

Developed in 1996 as GALILEO's first digital conversion initiative and redesigned in 2009, the Georgia Government Publications database serves as a digital repository of publications produced by Georgia state agencies. The GGP provides a comprehensive archive 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. Among the pre-1994 publications that have been added to the collection is the Department of Education Annual Report, which has detailed textual and photographic information surveying the education system in Georgia back to 1871.

The Georgia Government Publications (GGP) database consists of over 45,000 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 diverse 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.
