The Library is delighted to launch the McGill Archival Collections Catalogue - a single interface for searching the Library's archival holdings.
Access this catalogue from the search box found on the Library’s main page .
From Wilder Penfield to Madeleine Parent, the Zoological Society of Montreal to Victorian valentines, explore archival material from McGill’s history as well as letters, records, and photographs from notable individuals, families, and organizations.
The catalogue currently contains descriptions of hundreds of archival collections from four of McGill’s special collections repositories:
- Canadian Architecture Collection
- McGill University Archives
- Osler Library of the History of Medicine
- Rare Books and Special Collections
Additional descriptions are being added every day and more digitized content will be made available over time in conjunction with McGill’s 200th anniversary.
In order to help your research, the site also includes two web pages offering a glossary of archival terms and search tips (forthcoming).
