An instructional guide on how to use NSCAD's institutional repository

Institutional Repository: Home

NSCAD's Institutional Repository enables and enhances access to the scholarly and creative outputs of NSCAD by presenting various digital archival and special collections material. The purpose of the repository is to create access to NSCAD's history, promote collections, and preservation efforts, past and present, to the NSCAD community and beyond.

Go to the Repository using this link:

All content has been described according to MODS and Dublin Core metadata standards. The materials found in this repository are digital surrogates of special collections material, and archival fonds and collections housed in the Visual Resources Collection of the NSCAD Library, and the Anna Leonowens Gallery. Additionally, digitized theses of NSCAD graduates are deposited in this space as permissions are granted. This repository has been a multi-departmental effort to enhance awareness, access, and preservation to NSCAD’s history.

This repository is a part of the CAIRN network of repositories. It has been developed by the NSCAD Library beginning in the summer of 2016 because of a Young Canada Works grant to develop the repository. For any questions regarding the repository, please contact Lelland Reed, NSCAD Collections and Systems Librarian at
