Georgia Government Publications

Developed in 1996 as GALILEO's first digital conversion initiative, the Georgia Government Publications database contains born-digital publications and scanned print documents produced by Georgia state agencies. The GGP provides a comprehensive repository 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 are the Picture Book, containing biographical information about Georgia's State Senators and State Representatives, and the Department of Education Annual Report, which has detailed textual and photographic information surveying the education system in Georgia back to 1871. The Georgia Official and Statistical Register, 1923-1990 also is a project of the GGP and is available through a separate interface.

In 2003, the American Association of Law Libraries acknowledged the GGP with its "Public Access to Government Information" Award.
