This is a special collection of British and Colonial North American sources, including the British West Indies, predominantly from 1750-1850, published mainly in microformat and limited digital format. Though the study of American Revolutionary War loyalists is the primary focus, the materials transcend beyond this to provide a range of sources for colonial studies in the British Atlantic World for the 18th and 19th centuries. Descriptions of these titles are found by searching or browsing the catalogue; whereas, access to our published material in print is found separately by clicking on the Print Materials link.

The Loyalist Collection is found in open stacks on the 5th floor (Room 520 A) of the Harriet Irving Library and is available for self-service use whenever the Library is open.  Research appointments are required to for staff assistance.
