About the NL Collection

The Collection is comprised of books, periodicals, newspapers, government documents, maps, photographs, post cards, pamphlets and manuscripts - all related to Newfoundland & Labrador.

Many of the books in the Newfoundland and Labrador Collection date to the 18th and 19th centuries; newspapers date back to 1810; the majority of the maps date from before 1900 with the earliest being 1630; and the Collection also has pre-1800 census returns from several areas of Newfoundland.
