History

The University Archives is the repository for historic records of the Wilfrid Laurier University and its predecessors Waterloo Lutheran University and Waterloo College, as well as the Waterloo Lutheran Seminary. The materials document student life, research, teaching and learning, the physical campus, and the administration of the university.

Laurier Special Collections is the library's research collection of primary documents. The collection focuses on: the Environment (with an emphasis on water resources, Canada's North, and biosphere reserves in Canada); the history of Lutheranism in Canada; and the history of Kitchener-Waterloo.
