Government Information Service Collections

Heritage

The historical strength of the Government Documents collection is considerable. Established in 1962, the collection is multi-disciplinary, and supports a wide variety of research and teaching programs with monographs, serials, microforms and access to electronic databases. The Department is a depository library for the Canadian government, the United Nations, the International Labour Organization, and the European Union. The collection comprises more than 150 years of British government publications in particular, as well as historical material from the United Nations and other international organizations. Some highlights include 16th century Journals of the House of Lords; and U.S. Congressional records from the 1800s.
