As part of its mandate, Archives & Special Collections collects University Heritage materials and makes them available to the public.
This includes the student newspaper The Carleton, later renamed The Charlatan, as well as Rideau River Residence Association publications Needles and The Resin. We also include publications from Carleton University’s administration, including This Week at Carleton, This is Carleton, and course calendars dating back to the 1940’s. To view these documents, please contact the archives.
Available on Archives & Special Collections' photographic database are university heritage photographs including the Carleton University Library Historical Photograph Collection, and photos from the former Public Relations and Information Services, and the Department of Recreation and Athletics. Other fonds, including that of the Board of Governors, Carleton International, and the Department of University Communication also contain university heritage materials.
