Northeastern Ontario Collection|
Ontario, Northern--History; Ontario, Northern--Politics and government
The collection was established in 1974. A SSHRC grant for $48,500 was obtained in 1986 for the purchase of additional materials.
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.
There is a wide selection of material available in all applicable languages. English, French, Polish, Italian, and other languages are included.
410 monographs; 25 serials; 20 serials (including newspapers) currently received. Some serials are recorded on microfilm.
The collection is partially catalogued on cards and on-line. Uncatalogued material is accessible. LC classification and subject headings are used. Part of the holdings are recorded in UTLAS.
The collection is open to the public during regular library hours. For further information visit: http://laurentian.ca/library/archives/archives_e.php.
