Archival collections

The following list is a brief selection of digital and microfilm collections we own at the library. Bear in mind that there are numerous published collections of archival sources on specific themes/countries/periods available in our print collection and accessible via the catalogue. In some cases, these have even been translated into English by the editors, such as in this example. There are unfortunately too many of these to list here, but please consult eamon.duffy [at] mcgill.ca (Eamon Duffy) if you need assistance in locating them.
