A project to digitize content from the May 4 Collection, sponsored by a grant from the National Archives' National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
Description: Kent State University Libraries’ department of Special Collections and Archives will digitize approximately 35 cubic feet of materials (approx. 50,000 documents) related to the actions and reactions surrounding the Kent State shootings of May 4, 1970. The digitization of these documents will allow users to explore these events and their context through free, online access. Digitized materials will be made available as they are completed. Please check this site for updates. Materials digitized for this project and prior to this grant, are available in the Kent State Shootings Digital Archive.
