This article surveys collections and archives of antiapartheid movements across the globe, covering organizations and activists, and not only print but also image, sound, and film materials. Particular attention is given to archives with a global span. The countries covered have a global sweep across five continents and include archives in South Africa, the United States, Sweden, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Russia, India, and Australasia. International organizations also are included. The state of the art of digitization of such collections is directly addressed and briefly contextualized in terms of important questions on the development and application of primary sources in writing history, as well as recent trends and emerging models of digital repositories as they affect the history of antiapartheid movements. The article will be of considerable practical and theoretical use to scholars of the global antiapartheid movement.
