As a college librarian, I often hear stressed-out students searching for primary sources say, "I'll take anything." Don't settle for just anything. There is a treasury of primary source material available electronically. Peruse my selection of 200-plus primary source sites by conducting a keyword search, exploring the tag cloud at left, or browsing by historical era. You can also visit my Delicious and Diigo sites to review my bookmarks. Here's hoping you find what you're looking for.

Malcom X's killer paroled

Thomas Hagan, the only man to admit shooting Malcolm X, was released on parole Tuesday, 45 years after the civil rights leader was slain. The Malcolm X Project at Columbia University features a collection of digital media items that create a portrait of Malcolm X’s life and lasting impact. Among the items you’ll find there are interviews with Malcolm X’s contemporaries, news reports detailing his life’s work and describing his assassination, F.B.I. agents’ reports of their investigation of the slaying and sound recordings of Malcolm X's speeches. The photograph of Malcolm X at left comes from the Library of Congress.
