Archives, Rare Books and Manuscripts

The Library’s archival and book collections support programs and teaching at Brock University. The Niagara Collection, our principal collection, includes all aspects of Niagara’s history and development, especially early travellers’ accounts of Niagara, local literature and items related to Niagara’s grape and wine industry.

Special Collections and Archives also welcomes any memorabilia related to Brock University with particular interest in the institution’s early days.
