Special Collections in the Library Catalogue

Colourful spines of old novels on a shelf, including Uncle Tom's Cabin and the Wizard of Oz
Our published Special Collections works can be found in the Leddy Library catalogue.

Find rare books, local authors, and other "special" published works!

Our Special Collections items are published works, and are therefore listed in the regular Leddy Library catalogue (Omni). Search by title, author, subject, keyword (etc.) as you would for any ordinary book.

Items held by Archives & Special Collections will have location information that looks something like this:  “Available at: Leddy Library Rare Books & Special Collections – Main Building – Basement – Archives”

Search the Library Catalogue for Special Collections

Reminder: Special Collections items are not available for circulation, so you’ll need to come see us in Archives & Special Collections (Main Building basement, suite G-100) to consult them on-site in our Reading Room.
