About Archives & Special Collections


The University of Toronto Scarborough Library, Archives & Special Collections’ mandate is to acquire, preserve, arrange, describe and provide access to rare and unique materials that support curricula and research at the University of Toronto Scarborough, materials documenting the history of the University of Toronto Scarborough campus and material documenting the Scarborough community.

Archives & Special Collections Reading Room

The Archives & Special Collections reading room is now in AC260 in the Library and is available by appointment only. The space allows small classes (approximately 10-12 people) and researchers to access the library’s special collections, as well as receive instruction on the UTSC Library’s current digital collections as well as emerging digital scholarship methods.

We are in an outreach phase of the project, and seeking to understand which collections and services are most important to you with the hopes of maximizing this small space for collective use. Please let us know by email if you are willing to share your thoughts on the usefulness of a special collections reading room, how our collections might benefit your classes, and what you would most like to see in a space like this.
