Resource Spotlight: Slavery and Anti-Slavery

Students and faculty can gain new insights and context into many subject areas by using the Slavery and Anti-Slavery: A Transnational Archive database.

Need a chronology? Looking for primary documents? Want to know more about the key people involved? This searchable database provides a variety of credible and vetted primary and secondary resources, ensuring that students and faculty have the highest quality materials for their projects.

This collection includes 5.4 million cross-searchable pages, including books, manuscripts, Supreme Court records and articles, as well as links to websites and biographies. Strong partnerships with the Amistad Research Center, the Bibliothèque nationale de France, the British Library, the National Archives in Kew, Oberlin College, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and many other institutions make this collection both a unique and particularly extensive resource.

If you need help navigating the collection or have any questions, please contact the Reference Desk at 847-214-7354 or libref@elgin.edu.
