Resources for the Study of America's History

The John D. Rockefeller Jr. Library is dedicated to advancing knowledge of colonial British America, the American Revolution, the early United States, and the history of the Restoration of Colonial Williamsburg. Unique to the library is the body of research on the buildings, people, trades, and material culture of 18th-century Williamsburg.

Catalog search (books and manuscripts):

Note: Our books and manuscripts are included in the William & Mary Libraries Catalog.

Please note: While the library moves to a new catalog, the version on the web does not reflect accurate book availability information. We look forward to introducing the new system with its more advanced searching and retrieval options in early August. Thank you for your patience during this time of transition.
