Welcome to the Archives and Special collections of the University of Ottawa

The Archives and Special Collections acquires, preserves, and provides access to archival documents in all media formats as well as rare books and other publications that support teaching and research at the University of Ottawa.

Use our AtoM database to find documents of individuals and organizations relating to the Women’s Movement Archives in Canada, the Slovak community in Canada and the United States, French literary history and other topics. Documents are available in various media types. The most common are textual and photographic records, but there are also posters and drawings, interviews, radio programs, music and documentaries, philatelic records, digital documents and some objects such as t-shirts and buttons.
