Investigations of nuclei in the proton drip-line region performed at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) within the last two years are reviewed. In particular, the discovery of five new proton radioactivities Ho, Ho, Tm, Lu and Lu is discussed. These proton emitters were produced by means of fusion-evaporation reactions and studied with a Recoil Mass Separator and a Double-sided Silicon Strip Detector. For Cs and Lu, the studies of level structure were extended beyond the proton-emitting states via the measurements with a clover array CLARION using Recoil Decay Tagging. The plan to use a fusion-evaporation reaction with a radioactive As beam developed at HRIBF, in order to study the decay of a new beta-delayed proton emitter Nd, is also described.
