Elizabeth Dafoe Library: Icelandic Collection

Icelandic Collection


Icelandic Heritage

The Icelandic Collection contains more than 27,000 volumes. It is the largest collection of Icelandic materials in Canada and the second largest in North America. This "area studies" collection serves as a primary research tool for the study of Icelandic language, literature, history and culture, while enabling the Icelandic community to preserve, reinforce and cultivate its cultural identity in the North American cultural mosaic.
