Programme Governance

The Georgian Papers Programme (GPP) is a ten-year interdisciplinary project to digitise, conserve, catalogue, transcribe, interpret and disseminate 425,000 pages or 65,000 items in the Royal Archives and Royal Library relating to the Georgian period, 1714-1837.  The ultimate goal of the GPP is to provide a unique digital resource that is both readily accessible to members of the public and capable of sophisticated manipulation by researchers in any discipline, and to offer academic and public programming representing fresh research and interpretation.  

The GPP is a partnership between Royal Collection Trust and King’s College London and is joined by primary United States partners the Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture and William & Mary. Other key U.S. institutions participating in the GPP include the Library of Congress, Mount Vernon and the Sons of the American Revolution. The GPP is governed by an memorandum of agreement (MOA) among the four partners.

A Programme Steering Committee (PSC) of senior leadership from each organization and Programme managers sets the priorities, and strategy for the programme.

An Academic Steering Committee, Communications & Fundraising Committee, and Operations Board take an interdisciplinary approach to steward the activities of the programme.
