The Eccles Centre for American Studies

The Eccles Centre for American Studies was founded by David and Mary Eccles in 1991. Based at the British Library - which houses the foremost collection of American books, manuscripts, journals, newspapers and sound recordings outside of the United States - the Centre has two broad aims: to promote the Library's North American materials, and to support American Studies in schools and universities.
