Ottawa University Archives Guide

To Maintain the current archives website which has disappeared from the main library site.



If you are interested in researching Ottawa University History, the Ottawa University Archives is the place to start. The Archives Room is located in the Basement of the Gangwish Library. Access to the Archives is restricted and you must contact a librarian to ask about any information you might want to find. The best place to start is to email either of the OU Librarians and ask your question. The library receives regular calls and emails from the public and alumni asking questions about Ottawa University history.

Archives collections are organized by RG or record group number and subject and files, if we have them will need to be retrieved for you.

  • Yearbooks

  • Papers
