Spotlight on: Social change special collections at Du Bois Library
Social Change Primary Source Collections, 25th floor
Building upon the activist legacy of W.E.B. Du Bois, the Department of Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) collects primary materials relating to individuals and groups devoted to the political, economic, spiritual, and social transformation of American society. The intent in taking such a broad collecting scope is to view social change as a totality, rather than as isolated movements and to document how ideas about one set of social issues informs other issues, and how social causes cross-pollinate, organizationally and conceptually. By preserving a record of these activities, SCUA makes it possible for future scholars, activists, and members of the community to continue to engage with the ideas that have motivated so many.
