Labrador Institute Library

About Us 

The Labrador Institute was established by Memorial University to stimulate, coordinate, and support major University projects and programs and to expand the Labrador knowledge base. All Labrador Institute library materials are included in the MUN Libraries online catalogue and users have access to all of MUN Libraries' online resources.

The Labrador Institute has an extensive collection of films, photographs and slides about Labrador, its environment and culture. One important group of photos were obtained from Bowdoin College in Maine and these photographs show life in Labrador from 1897 to the early 1900's.


The library is co-located with the College of the North Atlantic, Happy Valley-Goose Bay Campus library, at 219 Hamilton River Road, in room 136.
