Custodial history

The Education Centre Library's vertical file was repeatedly culled in the 2000s as its resources increasingly became available online and its use declined. The vertical file was dismantled around the time of the Library's move to the new Harris Learning Library building in 2011, and only documents relating to North Bay and northeastern Ontario were retained.

Scope and content

Collection consists of pamphlets, articles, reports, and ephemera relating to North Bay and northeastern Ontario that were collected by the Education Centre Library for its vertical file (a collection of documents maintained by a library to provide easy access to information about frequently-requested topics; vertical files were especially popular before the rise of the Internet). The collection was created from the early 1970s, when the Library was founded, until the dissolution of the vertical file in the late 2000s.

Most files are arranged alphabetically by subject or by place name (in the case of items relating to communities other than North Bay).
