Civil Rights: An Ongoing Struggle

The Law Library subscribes to several databases on the history of the fight for civil rights. These collections include rich primary source documents from the federal government, institutions themselves (such as the Papers of the NAACP), FBI files on Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Black Panther Party; records of the National Women’s Party, the Women’s Action Alliance, and the League of Women Voters, and a collection of video and other digital materials recording the Civil Rights Movement. These sources are available via the Law Library’s Electronic Resources page found here: http://library.law.uiowa.edu/electronic-resources. If you have questions, please ask a Reference Librarian, or contact us at: lawlib-ref@uiowa.edu, or 335-9005.
