The Silver Donald Cameron Collection has emerged out of the repeated donations of renowned author and educator Silver Donald Cameron. Hundreds of items have been donated to the CBU Library by Dr. Cameron since 2004.
Currently consisting of approximately 1,000 items, the collection is a direct reflection of Dr. Cameron's donations. As such the collection includes items from numerous subject areas, but the collection possesses a significant focus on Canadian and maritime literature. The CBU Library thanks Dr. Cameron for his help in enhancing our existing collections through his contributions.
Items within the collection are marked with a bookplate and are interspersed throughout the general collection unless otherwise indicated. Patrons interested in loaning materials in the collection should verify the availability of individual items in Novanet.
