Special Collections

The library supports the following special collections, comprised of materials housed or designated separately due to the unique nature of their content, format, reading level, authorship, or curricular need.


Weyerhaeuser Timber Company Collection


A collection which consists of several file cabinets full of forestry related articles, pamphlets and other similar material, donated by the Weyerhauser Company.  It is housed in the Oscar Lathlin Research Library. 

Children's Collection


A collection comprised of fiction, nonfiction, and audiovisual media appropriate for children supporting the curriculum needs of the Early Learning and Child Care diploma and the Faculty of Education.  Purchase criteria include, but are not limited to, English-language works and award winners; Indigenous peoples of Canada/North America content, including Indigenous languages of Canada/North America; and leveled reading materials. 

Local Authors and Faculty Publications


A collection of print monographs and other types of published creative works or media that have been authored/co-authored, edited/co-edited, translated, composed, or illustrated by an employee of the University College of the North, student, or a member of the community. 

Reference Collection


A compact collection consisting of reference works, such as dictionaries and encyclopedias, that are meant to be utilized within the library for a short duration. 

Reserve Collection


A collection comprised of works selected by faculty to support specific, current courses. Reserves materials will also have restrictions on renewals, so that one patron cannot monopolize these limited resources. 

Graphic Novels


A collection consisting of works written in a sequential art format and comprised of both fiction and non-fiction titles. Special consideration is given to works with a Canadian or Indigenous people of Canada/North America focus. Books that are about sequential art are excluded from this collection.
