Virtual Exhibitions

The virtual exhibition collections at Mount Allison University Archives date back to 2004 when work was completed on the Marshland exhibition.  The aim of this initial resource was to create an inter-disciplinary project that involved students, faculty and archives staff in the preparation of online resources that could be used in teaching.  The Marshland project was generously funded by the Government of Canada and has become a cornerstone of the online resources available to the Allisonian community.

Additional projects have focused on history of sports, drama, and libraries at Mount Allison and on the lives of noted Allisonians. In 2020, we began the process of migrating these original virtual exhibitions to the Libraries & Archives' LibGuides instance and worked on creating a host of new exhibitions.

Further additions are likely so check back periodically. You can also find other virtual exhibits created by students and faculty on our Faculty & Student resources page.
