Social and Cultural History: Letters and Diaries Online (LADO)
Brought together under a new, unified search interface are all the letters, diaries, and personal narratives in various Alexander Street individual collections (including North American Women's Letters and Diaries, British and Irish Women's Letters and Diaries, The American Civil War: Letters and Diaries, Oral History Online, and others) as well as content from a wide range of other sources. Much of the material is in-copyright, rare, ephemeral, and available nowhere else, including all the interviews from the Ellis Island Oral History Research Center, exclusive Black Panther oral histories in full-text and audio, and many previously unseen letters and diaries. A vast index to oral histories from archives and repositories around the world links to full text, audio, and video whenever available. At least 550,000 pages are from Alexander Street's proprietary databases, with hundreds of thousands of additional narratives drawn from other online sources everywhere. There will be 15,000 new pages added exclusively to Letters and Diaries Online annually, appearing in no other Alexander Street collections.
