Here are several web resources. Some may link to duplicative sites because they cover some of the same information. 

GaNCH: Mapping Georgia’s Natural, Cultural and Historic Organizations for Disaster Response

New in 2020, GaNCH (rhymes with “ranch”), is a project to create a publicly editable directory and map of Georgia’s Natural, Cultural, and Historic organizations (NCHs), allowing for quick retrieval of location and contact information for disaster response. Directory information is compiled, updated, and uploaded directly to Wikidata, the linked open data database from the Wikimedia Foundation. Directory information is then delivered to this website where emergency responders can quickly search for NCHs in disaster areas. The Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library would like to gratefully acknowledge LYRASIS for their support of this project via a 2019 LYRASIS Catalyst Fund grantVIEW THE GaNCH WEBSITE HERE
