Civil Rights Digital Library

The Civil Rights Digital Library (CRDL), based at the University of Georgia, represents an ambitious and comprehensive effort to deliver educational content on the civil rights movement via the web. The initiative promotes an enhanced understanding of the movement through its three principal components: (1) a digital video archive of historical news film allowing students to nearly be eyewitnesses to key events of the civil rights movement; (2) a civil rights portal providing a seamless virtual library on the movement by connecting related digital collections on a national scale; and (3) a learning objects component delivering secondary web-based resources—such as contextual stories, encyclopedia articles, lesson plans, and activities—to facilitate the use of the video content in the learning process.
