Search the Archives

According to its mandate, the Nipissing University and Canadore College Archives and Special Collections (NUCCASC) selectively acquires, preserves, and makes accessible records that have enduring significance to the history of: 
  • North Bay and area (including the records of local individuals, families, businesses, and organizations)
  • Nipissing University
  • Canadore College
  • North Bay Normal School / North Bay Teachers’ College
The Archives holds records in all formats, including textual records (correspondence, reports, minutes, etc.), audiovisual records (photographs, audio and video recordings), architectural drawings, maps, digital records, and artwork. Special collections contain publications including rare books, theses, dissertations, faculty publications, as well as books and pamphlets relating to local history and the environment.
 
Please see the Care and Management of Holdings Policy to learn more about how the Archives' holdings are preserved and managed.

Access

The Archives is open to everyone, not just the students and faculty of Nipissing University and Canadore College. The Archives is normally open Monday to Friday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, but we recommend that you make an appointment in advance (see contact information below) so that Archives staff can prepare for your visit and will be available to help you. Researchers should familiarize themselves with the Reading Room Rules.


Search the holdings

Archival holdings can be searched online via the Archives' online descriptive database, which is powered by ICA-AtoM software. Publications in special collections can be searched for in the library's catalogue (location will be listed as "Archives").
