Hello and welcome to the British Empire Guide!
Hello and welcome to the British Empire guide!
This guide is intended to facilitate all aspects of research and teaching on the topic of "Britain and its Empire." Yale has extensive opportunities for the study of the British Empire, both in terms of the primary sources found in the university's own collections and through subscriptions to external sources.
The British Empire was the largest empire in history, and consequently there is a plethora of material! Users will find resources in the tabs above, each of which has a drop-down menu to home in on the topic, period, location, or media of interest.
I hope that this guide will function as a good starting point for scholars working with all aspects of the British Empire. Should you have any feedback, please feel free to contact me.
