Written by Natalie, one of our fabulous reference librarians:

Canadian is a database of digitized Canadian historical documents contributed by libraries, archives and universities across Canada including University of Toronto, Bibliothèque et Archives Nationale du Québec, TPL and many more. Documents include periodicals (journals & newspapers), images, digitized books and other ephemera. Think primary documents.

You can search the Canadiana Discovery Portal here:

Through this portal, you’re searching through all of Canadiana’s collections. You can change the interface to French and find French documents. You can also search each of Canadiana’s collections individually.

Canadiana has 4 main collections:

  • Early Canadiana Online (monographs, government documents, periodicals) related to law, literature, religion, education, women’s history and aboriginal history
  • Héritage: Microfilm from Library & Archives Canada, archival documents from individual fonds, focus on politics, arts, literature, military, aboriginal history, women’s history
  • Public Collections: Digital collections from partner libraries & universities, contains full periodicals, eBooks and other documents
  • Student Voice: An initiative of the Canadian Association of Research Libraries – online portal to growing historical collections from post-secondary students between 1945-2000

Check it out!
