Everyday Georgia

2019 ~ Present | Georgia Tech Library, Institute of Museum and Library Services

Goals

The Everyday Georgia project brings together students from diverse disciplines to compile and share the personal stories of people from across the state who have a connection to Georgia Tech research. Through audio interviews, photographs, written narratives, and a podcast launching in 2019, the project shares Georgians’ challenges and accomplishments and their vital role in Creating the Next at Georgia Tech. The Georgia Tech Library is also digitally preserving the interviewees’ audio interviews and photos in its Special Collections and Archives, which maintains the historical records of the Institute.

Issues Involved or Addressed

We will explore Georgia Tech research from the perspectives of Georgians through the lens of diversity in racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds, life experiences, ages, and other factors.
