Histoire administrative

The first library established at the University of Manitoba was in the Department of Science in 1904. In 1907, the University Council set aside a yearly sum for the purchase of books and bound journals and Mrs. W.H. Thompson was appointed first University Librarian. In 1935, a Carnegie Corporation grant allowed for the establishment of a junior library in the University administration building. However, the library collection still remained scattered among several buildings on both the Fort Garry and Broadway campuses. In 1953, to commemorate the University's 75th anniversary, construction began on a new central library eventually called the Elizabeth Dafoe Library in honour of Miss Dafoe's 23 years of service as Head Librarian. Additions were made to the Dafoe Library in 1960, 1963, and again in 1981 to accommodate the growing number of acquisitions and students.

Presently, in addition to the Elizabeth Dafoe Library, the University of Manitoba Libraries system includes the following units: Agriculture, Architecture and Fine Arts, Dental (Nielson), Education (D.S. Woods), Engineering (Donald W. Craik), Law (E.K. Williams), Management (Albert D. Cohen), Medical, Music (Ekhardt Gramatte), St. John's, St. Paul's and Science.

Historique de la conservation

The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in numerous accessions. UA SC 50 was previously classified as MSS SC 49 but was changed to more accurately reflect its provenance. MC 5 was transferred to the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by the Maps and Atlases Department, Dafoe Library, University of Manitoba, February 23rd, 2002. Librarian Hugh Larimer was in charge of the transfer of the maps to the archives.

Portée et contenu

The University Libraries fonds (UA 9) contains correspondence, reports, surveys, statistics and minutes, with files pertaining to Library Committees, acquisitions, library budgets, staff, publications, circulation of library material, library holdings and collections, and grants and awards. The collection documents the work of the Libraries Administration and the unit libraries within the Libraries' system. UA SC 50 and TC 32 consists of enrollment forms, correspondence, budget information, minutes, and six audio cassettes recording the "Continuing Education: Library and Information Needs" conference. The conference was sponsored by the University of Manitoba Libraries, Public Library Services, the Manitoba Library Association, and the Continuing Education Division of the University of Manitoba. The photograph collection (PC 47) consists of 7 photographs depicting the opening of the Carolyn Sifton Wing of the Elizabeth Dafoe Library. MC 5 consists of three maps. PC 5 consists of photographs depicting the opening of the Carolyn Sifton Wing as well as library employees. Two of the maps are identical and entitled Transportation Map (of) Greater Winnipeg, showing street Car Trolley Bus and Bus Lines. These maps, published by the Winnipeg Electric Company, depict the various public transportation routes available in 1941 Winnipeg. The third map is a map of Manitoba, published in 1897 with the authority of the provincial government of Manitoba by the Bulman Brothers and Co. Map Engravers of Winnipeg.
