Digitization of Bloomfield texts

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Students, researchers, and regional history enthusiasts will be happy to learn that 61 titles by historians Elizabeth Bloomfield and Gerald T. Bloomfield have been digitized and made available via the Internet Archive.

Comprising indexes, bibliographies, biographical overviews, and historical maps, the titles are exhaustive and invaluable resources for anyone interested in the early economic and social development of both the Region of Waterloo and Ontario as a whole.

Drawing on holdings from the University of Waterloo Library Special Collections & Archives, the project was made possible by a generous donation from the Bloomfields. Their foreward-thinking approach to access has ensured that these important historical resources will be available for years to come. Thanks is also due to Andrea Mills and Gabe Juszel at the Internet Archive for their assistance with this effort.
