Special Collections & Archives now has limited access to the rare book and archival collections. Please continue to contact us with your research requests but note that there will be a delay in resolving your inquiry. Note that the department remains closed and our materials are not available in person and the Reading Room is closed until further notice.

A selection of items is browsable via the Waterloo Digital Library. We also have over 140,000 items digitized—one might be what you’re looking for.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
