ACROSS MY DESK: Georgia Archives Virtual Vault
THANKS to BJSGen@aol.com for forwarding this mailing list posting to me. - M :)
The Georgia Archives announces the launch of its Virtual Vault housing online images of historical documents, such as letters, estate papers, Georgia’s Constitutions and legislative acts; maps, including historic, county, and district plat maps; photographs; building plans; visual images, and more.
The Vault provides a simple method for users to locate and view historical images. Its categorical arrangement (by topic, time period, geographic area, or record type) is ideal for students. Its links to Georgia’s curriculum standards make it easy for teachers to incorporate historical documents in the classroom.
Teachers, students, and others are invited to view or download images for personal or educational use. Teachers will find a wealth of materials for classroom use, and students will find images to illustrate reports and other classroom assignments. Historical researchers will enjoy the large variety of maps and images. The Virtual Vault also serves as a gateway to other Georgia Archives collections, including genealogical resources.
