The Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies is a
department within the University of Georgia Libraries, which reports to the
University Librarian and serves as a center for research and study of the
modern American political system. Established in 1974, the Library's original
mission was to collect and preserve materials that document the life and
career of the late Richard B. Russell, United States Senator from Georgia from
1933 to 1971. With particular emphasis on the role of Georgia and the U. S.
Congress, current collection development and programming focus on the dynamic
relationship of politics, policy, and culture--generated wherever public
interest intersects with government. The breadth and depth of Russell
Library's collections provide an interconnected framework of perspectives and
experiences for understanding the increasingly diverse people, events, and
ideas shaping Georgia's political landscape.

  
The Russell Library pursues alliances and opportunities for collaboration with
individuals and organizations that advance its mission. The Russell Library is
a founding member of the Association of Centers for the Study of Congress and
a primary partner and official repository for the Foot Soldier Project for
Civil Rights Studies, a collaborative project dedicated to documenting and
chronicling the activity and perceptions of lesser known participants in the
civil rights movement in Georgia. For more information about the Russell
