Title:Civil rights documentation project

Web site documenting the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act, as well as congressional debate leading up to the legislation. The site focuses on the years 1963 to 1965 and covers both the social climate as well as the legislative process. Digital materials including photographs, legislative documents, sound recordings, and text are presented in a timeline form. Many of the digital materials are held at other institutions to which the site links.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
