Georgia Exhibits

The Digital Library of Georgia and the New Georgia Encyclopedia are collaborating on a new, online exhibit site that amplifies often untold and hidden Georgia history. Georgia Exhibits use materials drawn from 25 Georgia libraries, archival institutions, and museums, whose collections are available through the DLG. With these resources, curators examined the history of race relations in Forsyth County, Georgia’s use of convict labor, and newspaper journalism in the state.
