The Gore Center has partnered with James E. Walker Library in order to increase access to our rich and varied collections. Walker Library’s digital collections are free and open to the public. The Gore Center also develops and maintains its own digital collections within the library’s CONTENTdm software. See the list below for more information on each of these collections.
The Forrest Hall Protest Collection exists in order to collect, preserve, and provide
access to the documents, accounts, and history of the
individuals and organizations involved in the debate over the name of Forrest Hall and other Confederate symbols on MTSU's campus.
This digital collection contains a curated set of documents, photographs, ephemera and
objects related to the Tennessee maneuvers,
home front, and wartime activity overseas. The collection is in its early phases, so more items will be added in the coming months.
