GALILEO and the University of Georgia Libraries are pleased to offer GeorgiaInfo as part of the Digital Library of Georgia. GeorgiaInfo is an extensive Web online resource about Georgia. Its development was motivated by the conviction that such information, which can now be readily accessed by Georgians in every county, could help citizens and public officials of the state become better informed in order to identify new resources and make decisions to improve the quality of life in their communities. GeorgiaInfo is comprised of both original material created by GeorgiaInfo staff and links to other websites with information useful to Georgia citizens.
GeorgiaInfo will continue to change and grow in response to the requests and needs of citizens and officials using it. It will be continuously updated to accommodate new available information and data and could change in appearance as new designs and formats are created.
The explosion of World Wide Web home pages on the Internet since 1995 means that new websites go online in Georgia frequently. The purpose and quality of these sites obviously varies considerably, therefore, the GeorgiaInfo webmasters will monitor newly created sites and provide links to those that carry useful information for public officials, teachers, students, and citizens in general. GeorgiaInfo staff will also continue to develop new material.
GeorgiaInfo is intended to be a vehicle for serving Georgians--no matter where they live. Therefore, we would like to hear comments or suggestions as to what you would like to see on the site, as well as any problems that you encounter with it.
GeorgiaInfo was created in 1996 by Ed Jackson, and with the assistance of Charles Pou, it was hosted by the Carl Vinson Institute of Government from its inception until 2008.
