Archives & Special Collections

Archives, Special Collections, and Museum

Since 1912, the MacRae Library has housed a collection of literature and artifacts reflecting different facets of agriculture: education, technology, and research. The Collections contain archival material such as old books, documents, maps, manuscripts, and photographs concerned with agriculture, science, natural resources in Atlantic Canada and Maritime literature.  Materials have been donated primarily by people associated with the College (20,000 items) covering the Maritime region.
