Documenting the American South

Documenting the American South (DocSouth) [] - is a digital publishing initiative that provides Internet access to texts, images, and audio files related to southern history, literature, and culture. Currently DocSouth includes twelve thematic collections of books, diaries, posters, artifacts, letters, oral history interviews, and songs. [Description provided by DocSouth]

Guided by an editorial board, the website is committed to the long-term availability of these collections and their online records. Its value lies in its depth, breadth, and multiplicity of access tools. It is useful for scholarly research as well as for a source for teachers in K-12.
