The Labrador Institute Library houses the premier lending collection of Labrador materials, including nearly 6,000 books, DVDs, and CDs, as well as non-circulating periodicals, reference materials, and rare books.  In light of the importance of food security and local agriculture, since 2019 we have also maintained a small, mobile Farming and Gardening Collection.

We are an open library.  If you don’t have a Memorial University Libraries card, then you can get a Labrador Institute Library card for free.

The Labrador Institute Archive is also open to the public for on-site consultation.  Processed holdings include over 15,000 images, 200 hours of sound recordings, 800 hours of video, and 3 metres of text documents. We also have a number of collections still in process, so beyond checking our online finding aid, an email to the program coordinator is always a good idea.

Research from a Distance

Labrador is a land of vast geography.  If you can’t make it in to Happy Valley-Goose Bay to see us in person, be sure to reach out to us electronically via the information on our contact page.  On many topics, we are able to provide a wealth of resources in digital format.

Many online resources may be of use Labrador researchers as well, including:
