Here’s a good one for you: Adam Matthew Education’s Rock and Roll, Counterculture, Peace and Protest: Popular Culture in Britain and America, 1950-1975 is an online file full of manuscripts, pamphlets, letters, eye witness accounts, government files, underground magazines (including OZ), photographs, posters, pins, and video from a host of sources, including UC Berkeley (their Social Protest Collection), Bowling Green State University (American fanzines and alternative press titles), the University of Sussex (their Mai ’68 Collection), and British Telecom. It’s a treasure trove of information about the period, with artifacts on youth culture, student protests, TV, music, movies, books, censorship, civil rights, women’s liberation, the space race, consumerism, Vietnam, and nuclear disarmament, with a browsable Chronology linking themes and dates together.
And Adam Matthew Education has graciously provided a free trial to e-Views readers here.
