The New Georgia Encyclopedia (NGE) is the nation’s first born-digital state encyclopedia. Since 2004 it has provided ready access to authoritative scholarship on a wide variety of topics. All of its entries are written and reviewed by scholars, fact-checked by reference librarians at the University of Georgia, and updated regularly to reflect new information and recent developments. Nearly twenty years after its launch, the NGE remains committed to the notion that history and culture are public resources that should be freely available to one and all.
The NGE would not be possible but for the ongoing support of the following partner organizations: Georgia Humanities, the University of Georgia Libraries, the University of Georgia Press, and the University System of Georgia/GALILEO.

Today’s NGE reflects the valuable contributions of many people. We are especially grateful to a long list of former staffers and consultants, as well as the section editors and editorial advisors for the first edition of the NGE.
