Featured Online Resource, January 23, 2012

This week’s Featured Online Resource is the Columbia Center for Oral History, a project of Columbia University Libraries. The Columbia Center for Oral History contains an archive of recorded histories and encompasses over 8,000 interviews. The collection contains oral histories on the New Deal, interviews with leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement, and anti-war movements. The Center just added a new oral history project entitled The Rule of Law. This project provides access to digital transcripts of interviews on the topics of the death penalty and Guantanamo Bay. The Center also has the 9/11 Oral History Project which contains over 900 recorded hours of oral history on topics such as The September 11, 2001 Oral History Narrative and Memory Project” which gathered information from many different people who spoke about their experiences after September 11th.

Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
