The Library serves both the public and the University of Calgary community. Our holdings include items from as early as the 17th century through to the modern era. Area strengths include: the Canadian military in international involvement from the Boer War through to Afghanistan, history of the Canadian navy, cold war intelligence, and wartime propaganda. No appointment is necessary to visit the library and visitors to just the library are not required to pay a museum entry fee.
