Canadian Institute for Historical Microreproduction Microfiche

Collection Type: 
  • Canadiana
Special Collection: 
Special Collections holds the complete set of microfiche issued by the Canadian Institute for Historical Microreproductions (CIHM) since its inception in 1978. As one of the original participants, Queen's has made significant contributions to this comprehensive filming project by lending books, serials, pamphlets and government documents to the Institute for copying. This comprehensive undertaking aims to provide wide access to all Canadiana publications of historical significance.

Early Canadiana Online

In 1999, CIHM launched a digital, web-based collection known as Early Canadiana Online. Most CIHM documents are now published here rather than in microfilm, although an archival microfiche copy is retained by CIHM.
