Collections and Additional Library Services
Stuart E. Murray Memorial Collection
On the second floor is the Stuart E. Murray Memorial Collection primarily made up of circulating theological and philosophical books. Dr. Stuart E. Murray was the President of Atlantic Baptist College from 1966 to 1980.
Morrison Education Resource Collection
Named in honour of Earl and Millie Morrison, this circulating collection of educational resources in Room 147, first floor, owes its existence to a $50,000 project to develop a complete learning resource centre.
Cogswell Collection of Canadian Literature and Poetry
Fred Cogswell (1917-), after whom this non-circulating collection of books in Room 158 is named, is a noted Maritime author. Consequently, much of the content is Maritime or Canadian in nature. Cogswell taught at the University of New Brunswick from 1952 to 1982. From 1983 onwards he has been Professor Emeritus.
George A. Rawlyk Historical Collection
The non-circulating books from the estate of George A. Rawlyk (1935-1995) are found in Room 158, first floor. Rawlyk was a History lecturer at Mount Allison University from 1959 to 1961. Subsequently, he taught at Dalhousie University (1963 to 1965) and at Queen’s University (1966 to 1995). The books in the collection deal primarily with Canadian and religious history; however, theses that he supervised are also included.
Two readers are available for reading microfilm and microfiche.
Interlibrary loan services are available by filling out the relevant form that is available at the circulation desk.
To facilitate the request of library items, the National Library of Canada has made AMICUS available at no cost. AMICUS is an online database of holdings from over 500 Canadian academic libraries. Searches from this database may be conducted according to the instructions outlined at each computer terminal.
It should be noted that a processing period of one to three weeks is required for all interlibrary loan items requested. Most borrowing periods range from two weeks to a month, depending on the loaning institution. Loans from within the Maritimes are generally free, but libraries outside the region charge. Information regarding charges for this service is available upon request.
