Over 100 digitized pages of a Milledgeville State Hospital Alumna Association Record Book have been added to the Digital Library of Georgia through a partnership between the Twin Lakes Regional Library System and Georgia HomePLACE. Spanning 1910-1957, the journal records the graduating classes of the Milledgeville State Hospital Nursing School over the course of its 37-year existence and is a valuable source of information about the mental health students trained by the program.
The Digital Library of Georgia (DLG) is pleased to announce the availability of the Mike Maloney Collection of Out TV Atlanta Video Recordings at http://digitalcollections.library.gsu.edu/cdm/landingpage/collection/outtv.

It is available thanks in part to the DLG's 2018 Competitive Digitization grant program, a funding opportunity intended to broaden DLG partner participation for statewide historic digitization projects.
