The site offers full text searching and multiple browsing options. GHN is compatible with all current browsers, and the newspaper page images can be viewed without the use of plug-ins or additional software downloads.
This summer, the Digital Library of Georgia will be adding several previously digitized newspaper titles, including titles from the Savannah and Athens Historic Newspaper Archives. Upcoming new releases will include dozens of R.J. Taylor, Jr. Foundation-funded antebellum titles from around the state, the NDNP-funded Savannah Morning News, and several CLIR-funded student newspapers from Atlanta University Center and Spelman and Morehouse Colleges.
