Special Collections & Rare Books

Special Collections was established to help support the learning and teaching needs and facilitate the scholarly, research and creative activities of the Ryerson community by acquiring and preserving rare books, photography, film and cultural history objects. We have a particular responsibility to help students and staff gain access to objects in niche subject areas and aid them in the interpretation of those objects. You can learn more about Special Collections on their website.

Access is by appointment only. Please contact Special Collections staff via email at: specialcollections@ryerson.ca or Archivist Curtis Sassur by email at csassur@ryerson.ca or telephone at 416-979-5000, ext. 6900. Come in and see what we have to offer!
