May 2, 2022

As of May 2, Archives & Special Collections is offering walk-in reference access to our collections. Also, he doors to Room 581 are open for anyone who needs to consult material in the Ottawa Resource Collection, rare books, special collections and archival material.

If you are interested in viewing archival material, search for archival collections here first, then we ask you to please contact and provide information about the material you would like to consult. This will help us make sure the material is available for you to view when you visit as it can take 48 hours for us to retrieve it.

If you are looking to access rare books and special collections, such as the Ottawa Resource Collection, you can complete an Omni search as well, which will help us pull materials for you faster when you visit.

At this time masks are still required while visiting MacOdrum Library. For more information see our visit the Building page.

For questions, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
