About the GKR project

The Georgia Institute of Technology is partnering with GALILEO, University of Georgia, Georgia State University, Georgia Regents University, Georgia Southern University, Valdosta State University, Albany State University, North Georgia College and State University, College of Coastal Georgia, Kennesaw State University and Georgia Gwinnett College to build a statewide institutional repository (IR) called the GALILEO Knowledge Repository.

The goals of the project are to advance scholarly communication by expanding the use of IRs by U.S. colleges and universities and by increasing the number of professionals with knowledge and skills in managing consortial IRs.

The GALILEO Knowledge Repository initiative is generously supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
