Summer is a wonderful time here in the archives. Since there are fewer instruction sessions to teach and reference questions to answer, it means that I am able to spend more time processing archival collections, and making materials available for researchers.
Here are just a couple of new collections at the Dodd Center which pertain to human rights themes:
A DVD-ROM of Basic Documents and Case Law from the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR).
The DVD-ROM was compiled by the ICTR legal library in 2007 and contains 4,262 searchable PDF documents, including Case Law Decisions, Orders, Indictments, and Judgements; ICTR Basic Documents, Rules of Procedure and Statutes; UN Documents on Human Rights in Rwanda, ICTR Annual Reports, and documents regarding the operation, finances, and personnel of the ICTR.
The Poras Collection of Vietnam War Memorabilia
This collection contains materials from the American Vietnam War era, including American and Vietnamese propaganda, posters from the pro-war and anti-war movements, as well as artifacts from American soldiers who served in the war.
