Guide showcases state’s history, culture

The New Georgia Encyclopedia, an online reference guide to Georgia history and culture, was the first state guide of its kind designed solely for the Internet. The guide, which is a compilation of articles, gets more than 1 million unique visitors per month.

The University of Georgia Press collects the material for the New Georgia Encyclopedia, and scholars write most of the articles in the guide. The photos and entries are available free of charge.

As part of its effort to highlight 50 of its most successful projects, the National Endowment for the Humanities recognized The New Georgia Encyclopedia along with other endeavors.
