Resource Centre

The Harriet Tubman Institute established the Resource Centre to house its growing collection of African Diaspora books, archival documents, audio and video tapes, microfilms, and other related materials. The Institute searches the world for materials that help us know and understand the history of the forced and voluntary migration of African peoples around the globe, from centuries ago to the present day. The Resource Centre supports the Institute’s mandate to promote a greater understanding of the history of slavery and its legacy by making available its African Diaspora collection available to scholars and to the general public.

The Harriet Tubman Resource Centre Digital Archive reflects the ongoing efforts of the Institute to share the information it finds and collects by digitizing them when possible and making them available online.

The collection in the Resource Centre is available for reference only and it does not circulate.

Please email or call (416) 736-2100, ext. 33058 to arrange your visit to the Resource Centre.
