To learn more about the creation of GOHL, watch this presentation delivered to the 2021 Georgia Libraries Conference by Lisa Bayer (director, University of Georgia Press) and Kat Stein (director, Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library).

In the video below, historian Catherine Kerrison addresses the broad historical and intellectual significance of curated open digital resources, which allow both scholars and an informed public to challenge the narratives of those who would erase the complexity of our early national history. This lecture was delivered on October 12, 2021 to celebrate the launch of the Georgia Open History Library.
