Where to look

The Archives Database contains descriptions of nearly all our archival holdings, with the following exceptions.

The following material is not in the Archives Database - it is listed on our website

Special Collections material (published books) and Trent University theses and dissertations are catalogued in Omni (read our guide to finding theses)

Browse collections

Browse by Subject

Fonds/collections are assigned broad subject headings, which can be helpful for exploration. You will also find more granular subject, place, and access points in the database. These continue to be added to support browsing and exploration of our holdings, but are neither consistent nor comprehensive. Keyword searching may also be effective for locating resources on a topic.

Browse by place

Fonds/collections can also be explored, broadly, by the county to which they relate. Other place names (townships, municipalities) have been added as access points in our database, but these are tools for exploration and not always consistently applied.
