Our searchable online library catalogue describes selected holdings from the Library at the Nova Scotia Archives. It is not a complete catalogue for the collection, but it currently includes over 20,000 entries, capturing what we know are the most popular research areas within our Library. (last update August 2013)
You can search this online catalogue in its entirety (over 20,000 entries) by using the Search Box above — or, since the Nova Scotia Archives Library has some interesting sub-sets, you can isolate and explore certain areas of the collection separately:
- Genealogy / Reference Collection (2100 titles)
- Akins Nova Scotiana Collection (selection of 1400 titles)
- Map Collection (selection of 1400 items)
The remainder of the estimated 50,000 titles in the Nova Scotia Archives Library are accessed via the Library Card Catalogue in the Archives Reading Room. All items not designated 'Self-Service' must be requested by Request Slips; items are retrieved during weekday open hours only (or by pre-booking).
