3 3 ProQuest History Vault – Black Freedom Struggle and NAACP modules ProQuest History Vault offers 6 modules focused on the civil rights movement. These modules are: One of our customers, Eric Arnesen, Professor History at George Washington University, had the following to say about History Vault: “History Vault is an absolute first-rate research tool, the single best on-line resource in African-American and 20th century history I have ever encountered.“ Gary Johnson, President of the Chicago History Museum, has told us: " The emergence of ProQuest's History Vault project is the most important digital development I have seen for university libraries. Manuscript material by its nature is unique content; in a way, more unique than photos. I am delighted to see how bundling this rich unique content can work so well.“

11 Vietnam War and American Foreign Policy –This module offers a comprehensive set of deep research collections on the Vietnam War –A key collection in this module, and one that is published for the first time in History Vault is the records of the Associated Press's Saigon Bureau. Over 40 years ago, as Saigon was falling to the communists and the U.S. was evacuating Vietnam, Peter Arnett saved the records of the AP's Saigon Bureau and brought them back to the United States. Until ProQuest filmed them and digitized them in History Vault, they were never before available to the public. The energetic AP Saigon Bureau produced such an extensive amount of copy each day that only a portion of their stories were sent to AP member newspapers and radio stations. Consequently, the Saigon Bureau records in History Vault contain scores of stories that were never published. These records represent one of the most complete day-to-day accounts of the Vietnam War in existence. 11 New Content in History Vault that was not sold in microfilm

12 American Politics and Society from Kennedy to Watergate –includes a number of collections that were not sold in microfilm. They are being published for the first time in History Vault. These collections are: Associated Press, Wire Copy on the Assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert F. Kennedy Associated Press: Cape Canaveral Bureau Records, Civil Rights in the 1970s: Publications and Reports of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Environmental Protection Agency, Records on Automobile Emission Standards Environmental Protection Agency, Records on the Health and Ecological Effects of Pollution, Records of the Department of Justice: The Cabinet Committee on Drug Law Enforcement, Records of the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse, New Content in History Vault that was not sold in microfilm

13 Struggle for Women’s Rights, –This module consists of the organizational records of three important women’s rights organizations: National Woman’s Party, League of Women Voters, and the Women’s Action Alliance. –The records of the Women’s Action Alliance are new material that is published in History Vault for the first time. The Alliance’s records comprise about 33% of this module. The Women’s Action Alliance was established in 1971 as a grass-roots activist organization. Gloria Steinem was one of the founders. The Women’s Action Alliance concerned itself with issues such as employment and employment discrimination, childcare, health care, and education. 13 New Content in History Vault that was not sold in microfilm

14 All history vault modules line up with courses taught across the curriculum. Here is one example regarding the module for Immigration: Records of the INS, This example is for Grinnell College. Grinell is an undergraduate institution that offers B.A. degrees with majors in American History, Political Science, Sociology, American Studies, and Women’s Studies. Grinnell’s History Department offers a course called: HIS The Promised Land: U.S. Immigration History. HIS Advanced Independent Study and HIS Mentored Advanced Project are two research intensive courses where students might use the Immigration module, or any of the History Vault modules. Beyond the History Department, the Political Science Department teaches a course on American Immigration Politics, and there is an Advanced Seminar in American Politics. For the Advanced Seminar, students are required to conduct intensive research, that could include the Immigration module (or, again, any of the History Vault modules). Relevant courses for the Immigration module are also taught in the Sociology, American Studies, and Women’s Studies Departments. 14 History Vault modules line up with courses across the curriculum
