Comment: The quality of content, ease of use, and effectiveness of this site are all
superb. Its collection of slave narratives alone would make this an invaluable
resource, but Documenting the American South has an extensive collection even
beyond these texts. The site includes some excellent secondary materials as
well, such as William L. Andrews's introduction to the slave narrative, excerpts
from the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture, and so forth. My American
literature classes have used this site for several semesters, and it has
provided a wealth of materials for research.
