About the Archives Catalogue

The Archives Catalogue is the best place to start searching for archival material.The Archives Catalogue allows users to conduct basic and advanced searches across all of the catalogued fonds and collections in the Dalhousie Libraries. You'll need to make note of the title and reference code. This information will help Archives staff find the materials you are requesting.

Please note that the majority of our holdings are not catalogued online.  We are constantly working to add more information to the Archives Catalogue.  If you can't find what you are looking for, please contact us. You can also search in MemoryNS, a catalogue of archival material preserved at institutions across Nova Scotia.
