Migration of content to LibGuide (2019):
Mount Allison University would like to acknowledge, honour, and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians (from all four directions), of the land on which we meet. It is upon ancestral lands of the Mi’kmaw and Wolastoquyik (Maliseet) peoples that Mount Allison University is built.
The images on this virtual exhibit were digitized using an Epson Perfection 3200 Photo scanner at 300 DPI, 24-bit colour resolution, uncompressed TIFF file format. No touch-ups were done, and every effort was made to reproduce as closely as possible the original image.
Web Design (2010)
Web design of this virtual exhibit, Pages Through the Ages: A History of Mount Allison's Libraries and Archives, was carried out by Rhianna Edwards, Univesity Archivist, Mount Allison University Archives, and was coded directly using HTML and CSS. Much valuable assistance was given by Jill Arsenault and Sam Thibodeau of Mount Allison's Office of the Webmaster.
Lib Guide (2019)
The migration of the original website to a LibGuide was carried out by Renée Belliveau, Young Canada Works Archival Intern (2018-2019), with help from Laura Landon, Head of Access Services & ILL and Public Services Librarian.
