University of Georgia’s New Digital Library on Civil Rights

The University of Georgia has gone online with its Civil Rights Digital Library. The new Web offering, made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, has three principal components:

1) a digital video archive of historical news film of the civil rights movement;

2) a civil rights portal providing a seamless virtual library of sources on the civil rights movement from across the United States; and

3) a learning objects component that will deliver secondary Web-based resources such as multimedia productions, interactive timelines and maps, articles, lesson plans, and activities.
