Welcome to Digital Tamiment: An online hub for Tamiment Library’s digital collections!



The Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives at New York University form a unique, internationally-known center for scholarly research on Labor and the Left. 

The primary focus of our collections is the complex relationship between trade unionism and progressive politics, and how this shifted over time.  Tamiment has one of the finest research collections in the country documenting the history of radical politics: socialism, communism, anarchism, the cultural left, the New Left and the struggle for civil rights and liberties.

This website is a digital repository for Tamiment’s growing collection of digitized materials, including oral histories, films, photos, posters, special projects, publications and Tamiment events.

Please use the tabs above to navigate through our vast collections.
