Labor has had a long rich history. For decades, librarians and archivists have worked to collect, organize, preserve and make accessible the important documents that record the history of the labor movement: its progress and triumphs as well as its set-backs. This program aims to highlight the ways in which librarians, archivists and others have endeavored to preserve labor's history, and have worked to educate generations on the important role of labor in American life.
