Bibliographical guides

In fulfilment of its first aim, to promote the Library's North American materials, the Eccles Centre produced a series of bibliographical guides to the Library's collections. Many of these guides were distributed both to academic and public libraries in the United Kingdom and to centres of American Studies throughout Europe.

United States and Canadian Newspaper Holdings at the British Library
The U.S. newspapers listed in this bibliographic guide became the foundation for the British Association for American Studies database: US Newspaper Holdings in UK and Irish Libraries. For the British Library's holdings of U.S. and Canadian newspapers, see Early American Newspapers and use Explore the British Library selecting Newspaper Library from the drop-down content scope.
