Perhaps one of the most well-known research centers in the world, the Hoover Institution was founded by Herbert Hoover to collect and archive documents related to the causes and consequences of World War I, and soon grew into one of the largest libraries devoted solely to political, economic, and social change in the 20th century. Appropriately, the library and its holdings are prominently featured on the site, with detailed information on using its collections and its prodigious holdings, including over 850 finding aids. For scholars and researchers, the most helpful aspect of the site may be the diverse set of freely-available research papers, newsletters, and complete books available on the site. Written by the Institution's fellows and scholars, the topics covered here include American public education, property rights, government accountability, and global cooperation. The site is rounded by a complete list of persons currently working at the Hoover Institution, either as a Hoover Fellow, Media Fellow, or as a full-time staff member.
