  • The Archives preserves many collections related to sports in the Peterborough area.
  • Especially notable are records of the Peterborough Cricket Club. Our most prolific group of papers, however, pertains to the history of organized youth camping. We are the depository for the records of the Ontario Camping Association, the Canadian Camping Association and the Society of Camp Directors. Associated with the camping records is a collection of promotional brochures issued by various camps, and numerous pamphlets and books. These items are all located in the Archives. The books have been catalogued as a Special Collection and appear in OMNI, the library catalogue, with the designation "CP". We also preserve a complete collection of OCAsional News and Canadian Camping Magazine.

Northern Studies
  • The Archives holds a number of collections with a particular focus on the North: it's exploration, indigenous populations, and sovereignty. Of special interest are the Trevor Lloyd Papers and the Robert Hunter Papers (described below). Librarian Janice Millard has created an important bibliography of rare books which Trent holds in our Special Collections section. A link to this bibliography is provided. Scroll through this bibliography to find interesting, rare, or sometimes even unique titles in our excellent library of northern literature. Alternatively, use the .pdf browser to find specific references.
