The Center for Nonviolent Social Change, under the leadership of its founder Coretta Scott King, has undertaken a massive acquisition effort resulting in the creation of the King Library and Archives , the largest existing collection of civil rights materials.

Seven volumes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s papers have been published by the University of California Press . The series is edited by Clayborne Carlson.

The Reference Department at the University of Washington's Suzzallo and Allen Libraries provides numerous nationwide listings of research and archival collections which relate to Dr. King, the Civil Rights Movement, and African American heritage.
