SFU AtoM Home

SFU AtoM (Access to Memory) is a collaborative venture of SFU Archives and SFU Library's Special Collections and Rare Books.

SFU AtoM provides a single interface for searching the archival holdings of both repositories. The database contains descriptions of records existing in many media and formats; where digital copies are available, they are accessible directly from the description. Over time, we will be increasing the digital content available through the site.

To get started, use the search box or select a browse option.

Please note: the Archives' reference services will be suspended from Monday, January 21, 2019 through Friday, May 3, 2019 due to scheduled renovations to the storage vault. This includes use of the Archives reading room, access to archival holdings, and digital reproduction requests. Reference inquiries may be made by email (archives@sfu.ca), but please be advised that archival materials will be inaccessible until Monday, May 6, 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience as we increase our storage capacity, allowing us to expand our historical research collections.

Note that this does NOT affect reference services in Special Collections and Rare Books, which continues to be open with full service according to its regular hours.
