 Digital Collection

 
 
 ​The Bras d'Or Collection holds aboout 1500 unique documents, reports and studies related to Cape Breton Island's history, economy, natural resources and enviroment. Many reports are of historical importance and give a picture of the changing economy of Cape Breton Island, especially related to steel-making, coal minig, the fisheries and agriculture. There are reports on the efforts to diversify the economy. There are reports on the the state of the eniviroment in a certain area, at a certain point in time. There are engineering reports on the state of municipal utilities and proposals for improvement.
 
Of special interest are the reports on the remediation of the Sydney Tar Ponds and Coke Ovens sites. Cape Breton University received the library of the Joint Action Group when it was dispersed. We have reports that span the clean-up efforts starting in the 1980's and continuing through to completion. The papers of the Joint Action Group are held at the Beaton Institute.
 
The Bras d'Or Collection only contains those reports that are not widely available, anyone doing research on Cape Breton should also search the Novanet catalogue for published material in the general collection.
 
Some of the Bras d'Or material is searchable through the Novanet catalogue. Other material is searchable through the Bras d'Or database where some of the reports have been digitized. The site is underdevelopment, with new reports being added daily.
 
The material is non-circulating. For access, please inquire at the Circulation Desk or the Research Assistance Desk.
