A map of the British and French settlements in North America.


This guide is intended for researchers interested in studying commerce and business during the Colonial period, defined for the purposes of this guide, as the time prior to the American Revolution. Although there is an emphasis on the British Colonies, it also includes material about French and Spanish possessions.

We have included primary sources, databases, and print material that may be of interest to teachers as well as students but this is guide is just a starting point - not all topics are covered.

For additional research questions within the scope of this guide please Ask a Librarian.
