RESOURCE: Social activism in the United States: Digital collection & primary sources

In the Internet Resources section of this month’s College & Research Libraries News, Jennifer Kaari (Mount Sinai West and St. Luke’s) provides an annotated list of digital collections of primary resources focused on social activism in the US.

This article outlines some of the high-quality digital collections and primary source materials available online on the history of activism in the United States. This list is not exhaustive, but focuses on strong multimedia collections that can have applications as both resources for original research and use as educational materials for classroom instruction and discussion.

Kaari highlights collections providing a general history of activism, and covering civil rights, labor movements, LGBT activism, and women’s movements.
