The Albert Gore Research Center is a unit of the College of Liberal Arts at Middle Tennessee State University, and functions as an institution dedicated to the study of modern American politics, education, and southern history, with an emphasis on the participation of people and organizations from Middle Tennessee. Our collections include many formats: manuscripts, government documents, business and organizational records, university records, photographs, audio-visual materials, ephemera, electronic records, and a select number of artifacts.
The Gore Center also strives to provide a laboratory learning space for its graduate assistants, undergraduate workers, and interns. Each semester, the center usually has four graduate assistants from MTSU’s Public History program, and these students process collections, manage reference services, curate exhibits, attend conferences, present papers, and help with the every day operations of the archive.
