Georgia EAD Survey

13 03 2010

Over the past few years, some SGA members have expressed the desire to have a state-wide EAD project. Given the University of Georgia’s and the Digital Library of Georgia’s recent successes in developing finding aid databases, we are wondering if now might be the time to leverage our expertise to develop a state-wide EAD database. As a first tentative step we’d like to gauge interest and basic institutional needs before deciding whether such a project might be feasible. We would greatly appreciate it if SGA members at Georgia repositories would take a few minutes to fill out our brief (only 10 questions) survey.
