A Redesigned New Georgia Encyclopedia

Take a look at the redesigned site of the New Georgia Encyclopedia! More than two years’ worth of researching, planning, designing, and legwork have gone into producing the next generation of the NGE. The technology and design upgrade ensures that the encyclopedia’s 2,000-plus articles and 6,000-plus images remain available and accessible to users.

Originally launched in 2004, the NGE is the first state encyclopedia to be conceived and designed exclusively for publication online. This authoritative resource contains original content and helps users understand the rich history and diverse culture of Georgia’s still-unfolding story.

The NGE is a project of the Georgia Humanities Council in partnership with the University of Georgia Press, the University System of Georgia/GALILEO, and the Office of the Governor.

NoveList Adds Tools for Finding Visual Appeal

Readers have a new tool for helping to discover books they love — a new category of appeal terms called illustration appeals. These new appeal terms are now available in NoveList and NoveList K-8.

Illustration appeals describe the visual impact of book illustrations. Are the drawings colorful and bold? Photographic? Or maybe dark and nightmarish? Having access to this information helps readers identify books with their favorite style of imagery. Readers who love highly visual genres such as graphic novels or picture books will now be able to pinpoint books that appeal to them visually.

Search NoveList or NoveList K-8 to see these.
