We’ve just recently added a new resource to our A-Z list of databases. Independent Voices is a collection compiled from libraries’ special collections that chronicles the transformative decades of the 60s, 70s and 80s through the lens of an independent alternative press. It contains over 1,000 titles providing easy access to the voices of feminists, dissident GIs, campus radicals, Native Americans, anti-war activists, Black Power advocates, Latinos, gays, lesbians and more.
The search interface gives you the option of a simple search or a more advanced search—great for those who really know what they are looking for. Those who aren’t sure what they’re looking for can browse by title, date, library source (view the titles that each library contributed) and series (titles grouped into series such as Black American, Campus Underground, Feminist, etc.)
