The Burney Centre at McGill University brings together archival material on the Burney family from around the world. Its holdings include microfilm, photocopies and scans of the major Burney collections at the Berg Collection (New York Public Library), the British Library and the Beinecke Library (Yale University).

The Centre is dedicated to the publication of complete, definitive scholarly editions of the journals and letters of Frances Burney (1752-1840) and the letters and memoirs of her father, the music historian Dr Charles Burney (1726-1814).
