The following bibliography consists of two parts: "Early French Presence in
Newfoundland and Labrador" and "Modern French Presence in Newfoundland and
Labrador". The former deals mainly with France's participation in the fishery,
but also contains entries dealing with French settlement, map-making and so on.
The second part of the bibliography contains, for the most part, twentieth
century entries and relates to the life of French-speaking Newfoundlanders and
Labradorians in various ways: linguistics matters, educational and political
issues or culture and folklore.

The bibliography is non-exhaustive and draws from the holdings of the Queen
Elizabeth II Library and the A.C. Hunter Library (Arts and Culture Centre).
Entries have not been taken directly from the holdings of the Centre d'Études
franco-terreneuviennes (CEFT), which contains works relative to French
Newfoundlanders, although both CEFT and the present bibliography no doubt
contain common information.
