Welcome to Special Collections & Archives

Owing to the complex nature of archival research we encourage you to make an appointment. This allows staff to carefully review your request and work with you to ensure the materials you wish to consult are ready for your visit as some collections are held off-site.

Researchers who wish to continue working at a distance can continue to contact us with research requests and staff will work virtually with you.

We also invite you to visit the Waterloo Digital Library to view a selection of digitized items.
