Maintained by the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership, the Center for Political Thought and Leadership, and ASU Library, this collection allows users to view material on “a range of topics including the founding of America, political economy, race and America, civil rights history and activism, and first peoples.”
The collection was first established in 2017 by Paul Carrese, the founding director of the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership, and Jakub Voboril, who works with the library to coordinate the schools efforts.
