Hidden Gems: JFK Collection

With so many resources at the library, it’s impossible to know about all the awesome and unique collections available. Knowing that, we’re highlighting some of our favorite lesser known collections in our Hidden Gems series. These are collections that are tucked away in larger library resources that you may not know exist.

The John F. Kennedy Assassination Collection is the first in our Hidden Gems series and is available within the HeinOnline legal resources database. Simply, choose the collection under “Browse Databases by Name”.

This database contains the National Archives and Records Administration’s complete collection of records on President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. It includes over 500,000 pages in almost 55,000 volumes and is fully searchable. Also included are books, hearings, other related works, and scholarly articles on this topic. If you are interested in primary source materials that were at one time classified “Top Secret”, government reports on the assassination, or scholarly articles related to the JFK assassination, take a look at this hidden gem. If you ever need assistance in accessing or searching library resources, please contact your subject librarian.
