The Georgia Disability History Archive began in 2013 as an outgrowth of the work of the
Georgia Disability History Alliance, a partnership between the
Shepherd Center (a spinal and brain injury hospital based in Atlanta), the University of Georgia's
Institute on Human Development and Disability , the Russell Library, and others to preserve the state's disability history. The Alliance and Archive represent the first statewide initiative to capture and promote this history.
Scope and Content
