It may still be years away, but here in the Archives and Special Collections, we’re busily anticipating Dalhousie’s 200th anniversary in 2018. This summer we scanned a batch of University Yearbooks and made them available online in DalSpace, our institutional repository. We’ve already processed some archival records of past university presidents (e.g., Arthur Stanley MacKenzie) and we’re currently processing a variety of faculty papers.
We’ve also created a new research guide – a Guide to the History of Dalhousie. The guide pulls together some of our existing indices and research tools and adds links and online resources from other university departments.
Over the coming months, we’ll be adding links and other resources to help you research various aspects of Dalhousie’s history and development. The guide is meant for students, external researchers, and Dalhousie faculty and staff.
Let us know what you think!
