VVV: Saint John History Real and Online

This archival collection is a treasure trove of information and history with a focus on scarce or rare New Brunswickana, Canadiana, local history and selected works related to the history of the Atlantic Seaboard. The strength of the collections consists of : a research resource for local studies; a heritage library reflecting the cultural origins, literary tastes and reading habits of the region from the founding of Saint John to about 1900.
