Northeastern Ontario Collection

Subjects
Ontario, Northern--History; Ontario, Northern--Politics and government

History
The collection was established in 1974. A SSHRC grant for $48,500 was obtained in 1986 for the purchase of additional materials.

Description
The collection contains serials, newspapers, monographs, pamphlets, maps, theses, survey plans, photo albums, scrapbooks, and transcripts. The M. Plans of the Sudbury district, photographs of mining projects and a scrapbook on Ontario's first female mayor are among the unique assets of the collection. The collection is strong in the social sciences, but weak in the sciences. The present acquisition policy is to use the Bibliography of the history of Northeastern Ontario to choose, and the SSHRC grant to purchase material to fill in the gaps in the collection.

Language
There is a wide selection of material available in all applicable languages. English, French, Polish, Italian, and other languages are included.

Holdings
