Remote resources guide

Purpose and scope

Due to the public health emergency, the Archives' Reading Room is closed until further notice. During this time, archivists and staff are working remotely to continue to support researchers to the best of our ability. 

This guide provides researchers with information on digital-born and digitized material available for download on SFU's Access to Memory (AtoM) website.

Digital material is listed below under three distinct record group headings:

  • University records
  • Campus community records
  • Non-SFU records

Each record or item listed includes a brief description of its content and a link to SFU AtoM where the material can viewed or downloaded.

For questions regarding copyright, access, or related material in our holdings, please contact the Reference Archivist at archives@sfu.ca.
