When complete, the collection will contain 150,000 pages of cross-searchable content, including thousands of artifacts from "hidden" archives and other materials not available anywhere else.

The collection includes a wide range of interviews—with the Beatles, the Weathermen, commune members, and women beat writers—as well as memoirs and diaries from Vietnam War veterans, civil rights workers, feminists, and regular people caught up in the times. Included are autobiographies of Abbie Hoffman, Medgar Evers, Bill Graham, and Roger Mudd; Civil Rights Commission hearing transcripts; and books documenting the 1960s. Additional content is being added monthly. The collection will also include more than a dozen critical essays from prominent humanities scholars that lend context and serve as practical guides, introducing students to the process and methodology of scholarly research with primary sources.

The Sixties can be accessed online at  Anyone may browse this collection for free. Document-level access requires authentication.
