ATHENS - A University of Georgia library has received a grant to process the records of the Republican and Democratic parties of Georgia.

The university says the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies has received a grant of up to $58,777 from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission for this purpose.

The one-year project will make these records available to researchers for the first time. The library plans to hire a professional archivist to do detailed processing and basic preservation.

The Russell Library's holdings focus on the relationship of politics, policy and culture and are a resource for researchers interested in the development of modern Georgia politics and public policy.

It is the official repository of the records of the GAGOP Papers (1981-1997) and the Georgia Democrats (1975-2008).
