The Bras d'Or Collection -  Life in Cape Breton

The Bras d'Or Collection, which was started in 1970, holds thousands of reports, studies and documents about Cape Breton Island.  These documents cover various aspects of Cape Breton history including the economy, living conditions and natural history. New materials about Cape Breton continue to be added including digitized versions of documents.

The collection is non-circulating but can be accessed by inquiring at Cape Breton University Library's circulation desk.
