A Case Study of the Digital Library of Georgia and Inter-organizational Collaboration

by Barnes, Mary K

Abstract (Summary)
The Digital Library of Georgia (DLG) serves as a model of inter-organizational and cross-departmental collaboration. This paper will highlight resources involved, problems faced with collaborating, and different types of projects created with respect to collaboration. Holding no actual physical assets or artifacts of their own, the DLG is able to use assets belonging to the University of System of Georgia, the Public Library System of Georgia, and smaller historical societies, in order to provide information to middle and high school students, researchers, and life-long learners, as well as to help and assist smaller institutions (and larger departments of the University of Georgia) digitize and provide sustainable resources.
