Where did the microforms go?

To get ready for construction on the ground floor we've moved the microform cabinets from the Ground floor to LI-5003. The user aids/guides to the collections are also available there. The digital scanner from Ground floor is now in Northern Studies Resource Centre (NSRC). The catalogue location for the microfilm and microfiche collections in LI-5003 has been changed to indicate their new location, including the room number. During regular weekday hours (8:30 to 4:30), users can go to LI-5003 and staff will assist in locating the proper material. Users can then go to NSRC to view the material. At other times ask staff at the Circulation Desk on the main floor for assistance.

The Archives now has a searchable database. You can use this database to search and browse for historical records held at Lakehead, which you then will be able to consult for your research. You can search by collection title, names of people and organizations, places, and subjects. More information will be added to this database as we prepare more detailed inventories, and acquire new collections of records.

Here’s your chance to get a look into the Archives! On Tuesday, April 5, between 11 am and 3 pm, stop in to visit the Archives on the 5th floor of the Chancellor Paterson Library. Students, faculty, and community members are invited to drop in for a peek at some of the highlights of the collections, to meet the new archivist, and learn about upcoming developments. Find out where the archival collections come from, and how you can do research with these valuable materials! Archives collect, preserve, and give access to unique material: written records, photographs, maps, and other documents that aren’t available anywhere else. At Lakehead, we keep the records of the university itself, as well as important collections about natural resources and development, Finns and Finnish-Canadians in the region, politics and activism, and many other subjects.
