Northern Studies Resource Centre

The Northern Studies Resource Centre was established in 1988 in conjunction with Lakehead University’s Lakehead Centre for Northern Studies. Originally created to encourage interest in northern and regional research, it has continued to expand its collection to become a significant depository of materials which focus on northern issues. The collection is multifaceted and contains print materials, electronic databases, microfilm/microfiche, maps, and more. The resource centre has become an important component of the research conducted by students and faculty of Lakehead University.

For information regarding the Northern Studies Resource Centre when the Centre is closed, please enquire at the Reference Desk on the Main Floor of the Library.

The Centre houses several special collections: Regional, North, and University. Each collection focuses on a separate geographic area or mandate.

The Centre is open to all Lakehead University students, staff, faculty, and interested members of the community.
