Working Class Movement Library
Based in Salford in the United Kingdom, the Working Class Movement Library offers a “unique collection capturing the stories and struggles of ordinary people’s efforts to improve their world.” First-time visitors should click on the “Our Collection” link at the top of the homepage to get a sense of the holdings, which include primary and secondary materials on trade unions, politics, activists, and protests. After that, the “Galleries” section is a good place to look over, as it contains some digitized galleries of trade union emblems, political posters, and banners. Researchers and scholars will appreciate the “Catalogue” area. Here they can search the online catalogue for items that might be of use for their own work and scholarship. Also, visitors can sign up to receive their RSS feed and learn about upcoming talks, events, and conferences.
