GGS Webinars
Learning from the Comfort of Your Home

The Georgia Genealogical Society Inc., is proud to announce that we now have the capability for offering Webinars to our membership and the general public thanks to the support of TechSoup and Citrix, Inc.

Archived recordings and handouts for the webinars are (will be) available on the "Members Only" pages of this website, when possible. Active individual and family members that do not currently have a username and password may request one from the webmaster.

Please note: The current GoToWebinar contract allows 100 participants. Any number can register, but only the 1st 100 that sign in at the time of the live event will be able to participate and be provided the URL for the handout. You may sign in as early as 30 minutes before the event. The broadcast will not be repeated. However, the broadcast will generally be recorded and GGS members will be able to view the recording.

Greer Martin

Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) : an Introduction to the Basics

The vision of a national digital library has been circulating among librarians, scholars, educators, and private industry representatives since the early 1990s. Now this free online collection of books, images, historic records, and audiovisual materials is available to anyone with Internet access. Many universities, public libraries, and other public-spirited organizations have digitized materials, but these digital collections often exist in silos. The DPLA brings these different viewpoints, experiences, and collections together in a single platform and portal, providing open and coherent access to our society’s digitized cultural heritage. Ms. Martin will demonstrate what DPLA is and how to begin to explore it.
