Documenting the American South (DAS) is a searchable and browsable collection of full-text sources on Southern history, literature and culture from the colonial period through the first decades of the 20th century. The Academic Affairs Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill sponsors DAS, and the texts come primarily from its Southern holdings. An editorial board guides its development.  DAS includes  books and manuscripts, in fourteen thematic collections, including "First Person Narratives of the American South", "Library of Southern Literature", "North American Slave Narratives", "The Southern Homefront, 1861-1865", "The Church in the Southern Black Community", "The North Carolina Experience, Beginnings to 1940", and "North Carolinians and the Great War."
