This collection is supplemented by books and pamphlets which have been catalogued for Research Collections and maps held by the Map Library. Researchers are also referred to the related fonds, collections, and items most of which have been acquired since 1975. Instead of being added to the collection, they have been described separately. Canadians have been indicated; the remainder are predominantly British.
