Welcome to our searchable online catalogue describing selected holdings from the Library at the Nova Scotia Archives. It is NOT a complete catalogue for the collection, but it currently includes over 20,000 entries, capturing what we know are the most popular research areas within our Library. (last update August 2013)
Please note that the NS Archives Library holdings do NOT circulate and are only available for onsite use. If you're unable to visit the Archives in person, try your local library for assistance in determining if the item you want is held elsewhere and available through Interlibrary Loan services.
You can search this online catalogue in its entirety (over 20,000 entries) by using the Search Box above — or, since the NS Archives Library has some interesting sub-sets, you can isolate and explore certain areas of the collection separately:
All new Library acquisitions are included in the online catalogue, which is growing over time as we also gradually convert existing card records to electronic format.
The remainder of the estimated 50,000 titles in the NS Archives Library are available via the Library Card Catalogue in the Archives Reading Room. All items not designated 'Self-Service' must be requested by Request Slips; items are retrieved during weekday open hours only (or by pre-booking).
