Bras d'Or Collection
The Bras d'or Institute Resource Center holds over 6,000 reports, studies, and documents on various aspects of the Cape Breton economy and living conditions in Cape Breton.
The project was started in 1970 and was funded by the CBU Library and the Department of Continuing Education. It is now funded by the Library and the Tompkins Institute.
The main purpose of the project this year is to focus on adding new materials concerning Cape Breton to the database and continuing the job of adding an annotated bibliography to the individual reports. A web-accessible database is also being developed so scholars and interested people can have access to the material.
The collection is non-circulating. For access please enquire at the Circulation Desk.
