Welcome to the Central Library.  This guide has been developed to highlight some of the more relevant resources and databases that relate to slavery in the Atlantic World. There are many other databases and primary sources that may be pertinent to your paper topic so please let me know if you would like some additional advice.

I am here to help you with your research needs--I am happy to help via e-mail or meet with you individually for a research consult.
