University Archives and Special Collections: Home


Welcome to the guide to the University Archives and Special Collections.


We can support you in your research by providing access to primary source documents as well as books, periodicals, photographs, and even some audio-visual records.

The collections include materials relating to Saskatchewan, Western Canada, and the University of Saskatchewan. There are collections on a variety of research areas including, but not limited to, English, History, Agriculture, Law, Drama, Gender and Sexuality, and Engineering.

Current Services

University Archives & Special Collections offices are currently closed onsite, but reference services are available by e-mail and a limited number of in-person appointments are available.

Reference service is available by contacting us at

Our website hosts a variety of digital content such as searchable databases, exhibits, and websites which means you can do a lot of preliminary research without leaving your chair.

Staff is monitoring emails Monday-Friday, 8:30-4:30. Depending on whether the material has already been digitized or not, and the scope of the request, delivery time of scans may vary. Please plan accordingly.
