Audrey and Harry Hawthorn Library + Archives
The Audrey and Harry Hawthorn Library and Archives includes a library, archives and the Oral History and Language Lab. Holding a wealth of information about MOA, its collections and world arts and cultures, the Library and Archives is a valuable resource for museum staff, the university community, First Nations researchers and the general public.
The Library contains an excellent selection of published research materials that complement the museum’s object collection, with particularly strong holdings about museology, archaeology, Northwest Coast material culture and world ceramics and textiles. The Archives acquires, preserves and makes accessible records generated by MOA as well as relevant records from private individuals. No materials in the Library and Archives can be borrowed but most can be reproduced and many can now be accessed online.
The Library and Archives handles reproductions and use permissions for collections images and archival materials. If you want to publish or display any of these materials, please complete the Application for Use of Images and Archival Materials form (below) and return it to us as instructed on the form.
Please make an appointment for in-depth reference services, extensive archival research or to access the Oral History and Language Lab.
