- 1966 - 2000
The School of Library Technology at Lakehead University operated from 1966 until 2002, administratively part of the Faculty of University Schools. It was one of only two university-based Library Technology programs in Canada.
Students enrolled in either a 2-year diploma program, or a post-graduate diploma program that could often be completed within 1 year. In the late 1980s, amid concerns that non-degree programs might no longer be funded by the Ontario government, there was a proposal to create a 3-year Bachelor of Arts in Library and Information Studies.
The records consist of:
School Administration: Includes reports, plans and proposals, newsletters, and reference material spanning the year of the School's operation.
Student Experience: Includes yearbooks, photographs, and scrapbooks of students and graduates of the program.
