What are we looking for? See below:
The item on the right is a great candidate for digitization because:
Contributes something that isn't already part of the Chattahoochee Valley Library's holdings at the Digital Public Library of Georgia
It is of significant value to local history
The item is something our community would be interested in viewing and preserving
The quality of the picture itself is high
We obtained the permission of the owner to digitize the item
The rights to the item have been clarified
Staff will evaluate any submitted item and contact you about whether or not we can have it digitized. Selected items will be housed at the Digital Library of Georgia as part of Chattahoochee Valley Libraries holdings. Find out more information below about how to determine the appropriate rights status of your item.
If you are not the author of the item, please get in touch with our staff, and we will assist you in evaluating whether or not we can legally digitize the item.
If you are the author, you have several rights or licenses you can apply to the associated item(s). These rights determine where people can display your item, if they can adapt or change your item, if they have to give you credit, and if they can use it in any way or for educational and commercial uses. Choosing a license can be difficult, and our staff can make the process much easier. The form below will help our team start the conversation of choosing what license is best for you.

If you’d like to donate materials for digitization anonymously or have questions about the process, please call our service desk at (706) 243-2681 or email us at Genealogy@cvlga.org.
