Digital Archive

The value of archiving Living Lab work

In partnership with the UGA Library we have created the UGA Living Lab Archive, consisting of projects and data arising from UGA's Living Lab program. By submitting your project or dataset to the archive, your work will have a lasting impact on UGA's efforts to become a leader in sustainability across universities. The UGA Living Lab Digital Archive aims to: 

  1. Document a dynamic collection of Living Lab project outcomes and campus data
  2. Share - Provide the opportunity for groups to share, analyze, and build upon existing findings in collection
  3. Teach - Support learning goals through utilizing data and projects as teaching tools
  4. Accelerate the implementation of sustainability solutions on campus, in our community, and beyond.

For this archive to be effective, we encourage all Living Lab projects, be they class projects, capstones, internships, grants, or other collaborations, to consider submitting project outputs and results for consideration to the archive. Please see our digital archive guidelines (PDF) to learn how you can submit your project.
