By searching for “Anti-slavery in Britain” on Liberty University’s library main search, a list of several books and articles on the topic came to light. The first book, written by Michael Fellman was chosen and contained good information. Then using similar key terms, a search on WorldCat under the terms “Britain Slavery Movement”, which turned up a good selection of books. The second book, The Mighty Experiment: Free Labor Versus Slavery in British Emancipation, was an accurate choice to the theme. Browsing some of the articles that came up under the initial search on the library’s main page, there was little to no information needed. So, a google search – found a scholarly article online titled, “Abolishing the Slave Trade”. By doing the google search it broadened the material available to gather information from.
