Rome News-Tribune - - NEWS - From staff re­ports

Bar­tow County His­tory Mu­seum is among the six in­sti­tu­tions to be awarded ser­vice grants aimed at broad­en­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Dig­i­tal Li­brary of Ge­or­gia.

DLG staff will per­form dig­i­ti­za­tion and de­scrip­tive ser­vices on his­tor­i­cal text, graphic and au­dio­vi­sual ma­te­ri­als. The Bar­tow His­tory Cen­ter is at 4 E. Church St., Cartersville.

The pro­ject will dig­i­tize part of a col­lec­tion of county doc­u­ments dat­ing back to 1850.

Other re­cip­i­ents are Athens-Clarke County Li­brary Her­itage Room, Booker T. Wash­ing­ton High School in At­lanta, Ful­ton County Schools Archives, Thomasville His­tory Cen­ter and Univer­sity of West Ge­or­gia Spe­cial Col­lec­tions in Car­roll­ton.

Based at the Univer­sity of Ge­or­gia Li­braries, the Dig­i­tal Li­brary of Ge­or­gia is a GALILEO ini­tia­tive that col­lab­o­rates with Ge­or­gia’s li­braries, archives, mu­se­ums and other in­sti­tu­tions of ed­u­ca­tion and cul­ture to pro­vide ac­cess to key in­for­ma­tion re­sources on Ge­or­gia his­tory, cul­ture and life.

It also serves as a ser­vice hub for the Dig­i­tal Pub­lic Li­brary of Amer­ica and as the home of the Ge­or­gia News­pa­per Pro­ject, the state’s his­toric news­pa­per mi­cro­film­ing pro­ject.
