DURHAM, N.C. -

A Duke University library will get a collection of materials documenting extremist and hate groups compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The collection from the law center's Intelligence Project is going to the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke.

The collection includes nearly 90 boxes of periodicals, pamphlets, flyers and other documents intended for distribution to group members and recruits over the past 30 years.

Scholars say having the collection in a library will allow researchers to examine the histories of hate groups and examine the efforts to monitor and infiltrate them.

The collection includes materials on extremist groups such as neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, white nationalists, neo-Confederates, racist skinheads, black separatists, border vigilantes and others.

The law center is based in Montgomery, Ala.
