Welcome

Welcome to the descriptive database for the archival holdings of the Leddy Library Archives & Special Collections at the University of Windsor. This initiative was launched in 2019, as part of a major, multi-year shift from an accession-based to a fonds-based system of arrangement in the archives.

Once the shift is completed, this living database will contain full descriptive detail for all of our archival fonds and collections. For now, it is a work-in-progress, and we encourage you to contact us at archive@uwindsor.ca or 519-253-3000 ext 3851 to request a search of the old database, which contains collections not yet represented here.

Shorter versions of these records will be made available via Archeion, the federated database hosted by the Archives Association of Ontario, beginning in 2024. https://www.archeion.ca/

Published works (books, pamphlets, maps) in our Special Collections are catalogued separately, in the Leddy Library's regular catalogue: https://leddy.uwindsor.ca/
