Featured Online Resource, American Presidency Project

This week’s Featured Online Resource is the American Presidency Project from University of California Santa Barbara. This project contains a large archive of documents, including State of the Union messages, Inaugural addresses, press conferences, executive orders, and many other documents. It also contains an audio/video archive where you can listen or watch video of events of different presidents. For example, you can watch the inaugural address of Bill Clinton from 1993 or the inaugural address of Ronald Reagan from 1981.

The project also contains election data going back to 1789. The election information includes a breakdown by state, including the total votes for each candidate and the number of Electoral College votes they received.

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.
