Georgia State University Library is connecting and engaging students with their local Atlanta environment through a new interdisciplinary digital project involving historical city planning maps. Designed as an educational digital humanities platform, "Planning Atlanta: A New City in the Making, 1930s–1990s," is currently being used by students in various disciplines. Through this dynamic platform, students, educators, and the public are engaging with their surroundings, discovering connections about the built environment and the past, and changing their perception of Atlanta in ways that would not be possible without the aid of this digital collection.
