Collections of books and periodicals (c.48,000) which, for a variety of reasons, are held apart from the main library areas, are housed in the Archives & Special Collections Department of the Harriet Irving Library. Also found here are c.6,066 ft. of UNB's institutional records and private papers (historical and literary) relevant to New Brunswick.
All members of the university community as well as those outside the university are welcome to use the resources and services of the department.
On site consultation of all archival manuscript and special collections material is by advance notice / appointment only Mon. - Fri. from 9 am–noon and 1–4 pm.
