Georgia Open History Library: From Colony to Statehood

In anticipation of the 250th anniversary of the United States, the digitization and creation of freely-accessible ebooks for 50 titles on the history of Georgia.

The Georgia Open History Library (GOHL) will publish open digital editions of 50 out-of-print volumes of broad historical and intellectual significance to the colonial and early statehood periods in advance of the 250th anniversary of the United States in 2026. Our title selection includes rare primary documents along with scholarly studies of the period, all enhanced with new material representing diverse voices in contemporary scholarship. When shared broadly in a permanent, accessible, discoverable format via multiple online platforms, the collection will be an invaluable resource to both general readers and scholars. A key component of our promotional strategy is public-facing programming with a diverse group of statewide organizations, colleges, universities, historical societies, academic organizations, and public and research libraries.
