The Digital Library of Georgia connects users to a million digital objects, in more than 200 collections from 60 institutions and 100 government agencies. With the recent agreement to index the organization’s collection, users of the Summon® service will soon be able to discover resources in this vast collection of digitized books, manuscripts, photographs, government documents, newspapers, maps, architectural drawings, audio, video, and other resources.

Serving as a gateway to Georgia history, life and culture, the digital library is an initiative of GALILEO, the state's virtual library, and is based at the University of Georgia Libraries. It supports the instruction, research, and service missions of GALILEO and the University System of Georgia through collaboration with university faculty, students, and staff.

In addition to providing access to its collection, the Digital Library of Georgia also works to promote the ongoing development, maintenance, and preservation of digital collections and online digital library resources through partnerships with allied organizations across the state. It provides digital library, photographic, and micrographic services to participating organizations, and works at the local and national levels in the development of digital library standards, practice, and technology.

With its single, unified index architecture and granular faceting, the Summon service provides unique opportunities for researchers to discover valuable content from open access digital repositories and digital collections as well as rich digital repositories provided by more than 100 customers.
