Finding Aid Friday: Labor Union Edition in Support of #LIUlockout

I usually try to feature a few interesting finding aids with a digital component, related exhibitions, or are just really cool (like the musical Mary Elizabeth Hallock Greenewalt finding aid by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania). This week’s edition of Finding Aid Friday is inspired by the #LIUlockout of faculty at Long Island University’s Brooklyn campus.

What follows aren’t finding aids, but a small compilation of archives and library resources on labor unions and actions in the US.
