Reference services

On-site consultation

An archivist is always available to discuss your research and help you locate and make suggestions on sources. It is good to know as much about your topic from secondary sources before coming to the Archives. If you have references such as  footnoted sources, be sure to bring them along to help in your search.

See Research Tools for finding aids and databases specific to the University of Toronto Archives.
