Program Overview

The Libraries contribute to the creation and growth of the scholarly and literary record through the publication activities of the University of Georgia Press, The Georgia Review, the Digital Library of Georgia, and the Athenaeum@UGA institutional repository. We will leverage our publishing and digital library programs to explore ways to establish new sustainable modes of
scholarly communications that generate worldwide visibility for faculty and student research, the literary arts, and digital scholarship created at UGA. We will collaborate with others on campus and beyond to support open data and open scholarship resulting from the University’s research enterprise. Through these activities, we will contribute to the literary, cultural, and educational advancement in our state, the nation, and the world.
