In 1969, professor Jack Kehoe journeyed to Italy to create a unique opportunity for University of Georgia students.
Century-old stories of exploited Georgia prisoners have been lifted from the University of Georgia Libraries’ vault to the gallery and now to the stage, through a collaboration among archivists, faculty members and students at UGA and Spelman College.
Through the partnership, students and faculty have engaged with dozens of artifacts and historical documents to create [The Georgia Incarceration Performance Project], which will culminate in performances this fall and winter.
The Course Reserves service provided by the UGA Libraries ensures that your students have free, timely access to your choice of course-related journal articles and/or books.

The Lamar Dodd School of Art is pleased to announce the School’s Photograph Collection, which has been a part of the curriculum at the Dodd for 50 years, was moved to the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library, one of three special collections libraries at the University of Georgia.
Lamar Dodd School of Art Professor Emeritus W. Robert Nix began assembling the photo collection in 1969 to provide opportunities for art students to have hands-on familiarity with examples of historic photographic processes, materials, and equipment. “As our culture becomes increasingly saturated with photographic images whose differences are neutralized by reproduction and through screens, encounters with these material, hand-crafted objects can be revelatory,” said Dr. Alisa Luxenberg, Professor of Art History.
University of Georgia students can now develop—and play—virtual reality from the comfort of their dorm rooms. Two Oculus Rift VR headsets and accompanying Alienware 15 R3 gaming laptops are now available for checkout from the Science Library Makerspace. Any UGA student may borrow the equipment for a 72-hour loan period. The gaming laptops are enabled for VR prototyping and exploration and loaded with Oculus Rift, Steam and Unity Game Engine software.
This equipment is on loan from Kyle Johnsen, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering in the College of Engineering.
“The systems will help students work on virtual reality projects anywhere, without requiring access to a specialized laboratory,” Johnsen said. “[They] are specifically designed to be self-contained, with all required software and hardware to get started.”
