Southeastern Native American Documents, 1763-1842


In 1999 the University of Georgia Libraries, the University of Tennessee at Knoxville Library, the Frank H. McClung Museum, and the Tennessee State Library and Archives were awarded a one-year National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to digitize 1,000 original documents and visual images relating to the Native American population of the Southeastern United States. These documents and images were selected from the most significant holdings from each collection and range in date from 1763 to 1842. The original documents reside in many separate manuscript collections within participating institutions, but as digital entities they are being brought together into a single electronic collection. The final product will be a database of facsimile images and transcribed texts, individually cataloged and full-text searchable, mounted on GALILEO (Georgia Library Learning Online).
