The Archives & Special Collections are continually digitizing our materials to make these more accessible to researchers. In some cases, entire collections of records have been placed online. Primarily, only selected items that best represent the holdings of a collection will be digitized. These are intended to assist researchers and inspire them to visit Brock University to see the rest of the collections.
Brock University Digital Repository
The Digital Repository (DR) is where all of the digitized items from the Archives & Special Collections are made available. The DR is keyword searchable and can be browsed.
We have categorized our digitized materials into three areas:
- Archival Resources – primary records from various collections within our Archives
- Digitized Books – published works from our specialized book collection
- University Archives – materials that chronicle the history of Brock University
Many of these digitized items can also be found in larger scale digital projects such as the Internet Archive and Our Ontario.
Over the years, we have created a number of online exhibits that highlight collections and themes that can be found in the archival records at Brock. These exhibits can also be a source of digitized content.
