The Society of Georgia Archivists Fellows Award recognizes outstanding contributions to archives and archivists in Georgia. To read more about the SGA Fellows Award go here.
Sheila McAlister serves as the Director of the Digital Library of Georgia. She has been an active member of SGA for 21 years. In the words of her nominator, Sheila’s “impact on the Georgia archival community is exhibited in her efforts to build archival capacity among smaller, less resourced institutions in the state. She regularly consults with institutions at no cost to them to help develop and maintain their physical and digital collections.Throughout her career, Ms. McAlister has remained committed to helping develop sustainable archival efforts by working to provide access to services, resources, and training to Georgia cultural heritage organizations. Her dedication to fostering sustainable archival activities in under-resourced institutions and her positive representation of the association on the national scale, are excellent examples of work worthy of a fellowship.”
Again, congratulations to Sheila for her hard work and dedication to the archival community.
