Special Collections has extensive literary archival holdings which contain correspondence, original manuscripts, drafts, research notes, photographs, sound recordings and memorabilia of Canadian writers as well as a growing collection of Canadian visual artists. Many fonds and collections listed below have finding aids; some have detailed published inventories. For those fonds (e.g. Clark Blaise) it is possible to Search Database for materials. Each database is separate and researchers are encouraged to search all databases in which there may be related material. e.g. John Metcalf material is located in the Clark Blaise fonds as well as in the John Metcalf fonds and vice versa.
