Digital Initiatives

The IBT Labor History Research Center is actively working to digitize the records of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, including some 15,000 reels of microfilm dating from 1904 to the present. Eventually, the digital collection will contain digital copies of administrative files, pamphlets, photographs, audiorecordings, and moving image materials. It will also contain digital images of artifacts, memorabilia, and other three-dimensional objects such as pins, buttons, plaques, clothing, and other objects documenting Teamsters history as well as the American labor movement in general.
