Archival & Special Collections – University of Guelph Library

The University of Guelph’s McLaughlin Library Scottish collection is one of the finest in the world. The majority of it is accessible on the second floor of the McLaughlin Library. Archival materials, special collections, and rare books may be used only in our Reading Room; however, the Scottish circulating collections are also available close by on the second floor.

More information about the collections is available on the library’s web site at
