“Relation is not made up of things that are foreign but of shared knowledge.”

Through this research portal you can access resources on the Caribbean held in Yale University’s libraries and Museums. The website is intended to facilitate all aspects of research and teaching in Caribbean Studies. Yale has extensive opportunities for the study of the Caribbean, both in terms of the primary sources found in the university's own collections and through subscriptions to external sources. Although by no means a comprehensive list of sources at Yale, we have assembled selected documents and collections that may be of particular interest to students and researchers working on a wide range of issues in Caribbean Studies.
We have also provided information on people at Yale across schools and departments who teach or undertake research in or about the Caribbean region. We hope that these resources will grow and expand over time.
