Archival & Special Collections

Library & Archives Logo

Archival & Special Collections supports research and teaching on campus, offering a passageway to the cultural, social, physical, and political history of the Guelph region and the University's founding colleges.

We offer email reference services to help you navigate our many collections. We also provide reproduction services for our researchers.  Faculty can also book orientation sessions with our staff to provide archival literacy training for their students.

All library services have moved online. While the Archival & Special Collections Reading Room and our physical collection are closed, reference services are available online. Please contact us via email or book an appointment online
