Spreading the Word Project
Spreading the Word: Expanding Access to African American Religious Archival Collections at the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for Humanities, is a collaborative project between the Archives Research Center and the Digital Services Unit of the AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library. The project will organize, describe, digitize and prepare for access fourteen collections of rare materials on African American religion spanning from the late 19th century to early 20th century, and from the 1950s to 2000s. The reformatting of audio and visual materials previously underutilized or inaccessible is a major component of this project. The digitized collections are available for access here on DigitalCommons.
