Donate Material

To the Archives

Archives and Special Collections are interested in reviewing material for potential donation. We welcome materials related to the communities of Acadia University, the Atlantic Baptist churches, and the Annapolis Valley. These materials are acquired for the purposes of preservation and research.

To Special Collections

Special Collections has been built up since 1846 by gift, bequest and purchase. The collections are located in the Kirkconnell Roomon Level B1 of the Vaughan Memorial Library. Researchers wanting to use the Special Collections are advised to discuss their research needs with the Kirkconnell Room staff. All materials are to be used in the Kirkconnell Room. Staff may fill requests for photocopying so long as copying is possible and will not damage the material or violate any restrictions; there is a fee for this service.

Special Collections are those collections of library materials which, by virtue of their rarity, physical form, content, or depth of subject coverage, are distinguished from the general stacks of the Library. They are maintained as separate and identifiable collections and do not circulate. Special Collections at Acadia are rich and diverse research resources containing a wide range of materials acquired by purchase, gift and bequest over the past 160 years of the University's existence.
