The Archives & Special Collections of the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) Library were merged in 2019. Since the opening of the first Erindale College Library, the Library has acquired records and artifacts dating from the establishment of the campus in 1967 to the present day. In 2006, the Library moved into the Hazel McCallion Academic Learning Centre and established the UTM Archive on the fourth floor to hold the archives and special collections in support of curricula and research on campus.
The mandate of the UTM Library, Archives & Special Collections unit is to acquire, preserve, arrange, describe, and provide access to rare and unique material that supports curricula and research at the UTM. It works cooperatively with the University of Toronto Archives & Records Management Services (UTARMS) to preserve and provide access to material that documents the history of the UTM campus and community.
Archives & Special Collections Reading Room
The Archives & Special Collections reading room is located on level two (ground floor) of the Library. The space allows for researchers and small classes (approximately 8-10 people) to access some materials of the Library’s archives and special collections.
