HomePLACE – Simplifying Digitization, Preserving History

Our digitization initiative, Georgia HomePLACE (Providing Library and Archives Collections Electronically), encourages public libraries and related institutions across Georgia to participate in The Digital Library of Georgia, which is an initiative of GALILEO.

HomePLACE has facilitated the addition of over 700,000 unique items to the Digital Library of Georgia allowing free, online access to primary sources on local history.

We offer a highly collaborative model for digitizing primary source collections related to local history and genealogy including collection assessment, project planning, digital imaging, staff training, promotion, and support for grant and other funding opportunities.

Georgia HomePLACE is committed to developing a customized strategy for digitization that works with your institution.

The Digitization Loaner Kits (DigiKits) provide libraries with access to scanning technology without needing to purchase costly equipment. Inspired by the GPLS Tech Loaner Kits, the DigiKits can be used for both staff and patron training and programming.
