Lending Library

The CNSA office has a small lending library containing publications concerning a variety of archival topics available free of charge to all CNSA members (excluding return shipping if applicable). To borrow a book, please contact the CNSA Office. If you are in the Metro area, feel free to stop by and visit the library in person.

Some advice about using our online catalogue:

Items are organized into folders based on subject. To see the list of all of our holdings, select the brown “library” folder along the left of the screen. To explore publications based on a specific folder, click on the appropriate yellow folder. You can also search within folders by selecting the folder you are interested in and then using the search box on in the top right of the screen. Items are searchable by title, creator and year. To search the whole library, simply select the brown library folder again and use the search box in the top left.

You can also sort the items in each folder (or library as a whole) by selecting the appropriate folder and then clicking on the heading you wish to search by (title, creator, and date). This will sort alphabetically or chronologically.

Items in serial form are not included in the subject based folders, but are only listed by journal title in the “Serials and periodicals” folder. Don’t forget that journals are often full of extremely valuable and current information, so don’t exclude them from your readings.

Enjoy browsing our stacks!
