SUBMISSIONS TO THE UOIT LIBRARY

UNIVERSITY OF ONTARIO INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (UOIT) LIBRARY
Evidence of engineering done in Canada in years past is recorded principally through printed or spoken words and photographs and through  buildings and other structures, preserved machinery and components. The historical writings, artifacts etc. relating to past engineering activities are important as a guide to what actually happened as well as to  lessons that can be learned for future application.

Buildings and other structures remain in place. Machinery and component artifacts are usually found in museum collections. Sources of printed, spoken and photographic records belonging to engineering companies, societies and individuals, are to be found in books or preserved in their original form in a formal archive. Early archival material on the activities and members of Engineering Institute of Canada, for example, is preserved and is available for research  at Library and Archives Canada, and more recent material at the Library of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. Several of the EIC Societies have also placed material at UOIT. Indeed, the present collection there is intended to become the principal depository for primary archival material for Canadian engineering.

The UOIT Library has recently begun to accept the personal professional papers of individual engineers, who are encouraged to take advantage of this generous offer. Contact may be made with UOIT & Durham College Library at 2000 N. Simcoe St., Oshawa, Ontario L1H 7K4; tel. (905) 721-8668-ext 2348; fax (905) 721-3029 or by contacting the Archivist (Brenda.Jackson@uoit.ca).

A fuller note on the EIC’s archives  has been included in the History Section of the EIC website (www.eic-ici.ca) under Article 25.
