Yale Slavery and Abolition Portal
Yale University's Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition and the Instructional Technology Group, have launched a web portal designed to help researchers and Yale students find primary source material related to slavery and its legacies within the University's many libraries and galleries: Yale Slavery and Abolition Portal (http://slavery.yale.edu).
Users can browse a small catalog of noteworthy collections, learn how to search for additional material, or explore a growing list of external resources. Resources from the Beiencke Library collections, including the James Weldon Johnson Memorial Collection, can be found at at the following link: http://slavery.yale.edu/collections/beinecke.
