Upon revisiting this site to move beyond a cursory browsing of its contents I am now even more greatly impressed by its breadth of material and perhaps even more so by its ease of navigation. Handsome and effective in design and mechanics this site will be a great source for undergraduate and graduate students and their instructors. Organized broadly into genres and then meticuously into alphabetized subject, it is clear site designers sought to make this site as user friendly as possible given their task of accomadating such a vast cache of digitized material. The search engine (powered by Google) is quick and thorough and the date retrieved provides sufficient information to avoid blindly trekking into the material retrieved. The contents contain myriad white and black primary documentation including, entire books from the "beginnings to 1920;" first person narratives, slave narratives, non-military lifeways, the black church, and North Carolinian literary artifacts, representative histories, and sundry memoranda. Searches may be done by author, subject, or title. There is a coments and feedback section as well. Have at it! Just a few sample searches culled a wealthy of material on such diverse subjects as antebellum amusements, blackface, and diversions, to war aims, and political and religious tracts. WS
You will need to have the Acrobat (5.0) reader. No other audio/visual software appeared necessary but this may change as the site expands its resource base.

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.
