New Resource: American Civil Liberties Union Papers, 1912-1990

May 25, 2018

Drawing from the records of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), this newly digital archive provides information relating to the civil battles of the twentieth Century through the lens of an organization at the center of some of the most contentious issues around race, gender, popular protest, the role of police, and the role of government on both national and local levels. The archive spans from the years before the ACLU’s founding through the 20th century. Cross-searchable on the Gale Primary Resources platform, the collection also features OCR for comprehensive searching, text analysis tools, and is compatible with Zotero reference management software. Explore via the library website.
