Archival description area
Material was stored in several locations in the Chancellor Paterson Library and transferred to the Archives 2016-2017. Most of the records were created or accumulated by Lenora Aedy, faculty with the School of Library Technology.
Scope and content
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.
