Accessions Database

The Accessions Database is a searchable database containing accession records of all university and private records held in the University of Toronto Archives. It is updated on a regular basis. An accession record is a unique number assigned to each new acquisition. University records accession numbers are identified by an A at the beginning of the accession number: A1999-0001 refers to the first acquisition of a group of university records in the year 1999. Similarly, private records are identified by a B at the beginning of the accession number, e.g. B1999-0001. Finding aids for some accessions are also available on-line. Availability of these finding aids is indicated in the FINDING AIDS field of the accession record.

Accessions described in this database are available for viewing in the Reading Room of the University Archives during regular office hours.

For publications and theses held in the University Archives, search the University of Toronto Library on-line catalogue UTCAT.
