We would like to acknowledge that the J.N. Desmarais Library & Archives are located on the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnaabek, which is within the Robinson-Huron Treaty territory.

Located on the first floor of the J.N. Desmarais Library, the Archive Repository houses the holdings of archival fonds of organizations and individuals from the Northern Ontario community as well as seven different special collections: the Faculty Collection, Fourth Year Honour’s Essay, Graduate Theses, the Rare Books Collection, the Regional collection, Reference sources, and Vertical files (from Mining & Environment database). 

All collections are accessible to everybody but all have to be consulted in the Angus Gilbert Reading Room, in the Archives. The Angus Gilbert Reading Room can accommodate forty (40) researchers.
