Bibliography of Slavery Online

The Bibliography of Slavery, compiled in annual supplements printed in *Slavery and Abolition* since its founding in 1980, is available to the public as a searchable on-line database.

The database contains verified references (except as noted) to approximately 25,000 scholarly works on slavery and slaving in all academic disciplines and in all western European languages, worldwide and throughout human history, including modern times. It includes print materials published in scholarly formats since 1900, as well as digital scholarly journals, recent unpublished presentations at academic conferences, professional historical sites, and major museum exhibitions and catalogs. It is now current through 2007 and will be updated annually (with a one-year lag) with the ongoing annual supplements from *Slavery and Abolition*, compiled by Thomas Thurston (Gilder-Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance and Abolition at Yale University).

Please note: This is a database of citations to sources. The database does not provide full-text or abstracts to the sources online.

Site sponsors include the Virginia Center for Digital History and the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia, as well as the University's Carter G.
