As per the lockdown announced April 1st, Special Collections & Archives is closed to the public.

Although we remain closed to the public, staff have limited access to the archival and rare book collections. Please continue to contact us with your research requests but note that there will be a delay in resolving your inquiry.

We also invite you to visit the Waterloo Digital Library to view select items from our collections online.
