About The Book
The book Архівна україніка в Канаді: Довідник is an extensive (882 pp.) Ukrainian-language guide to Ukrainian and Ukrainian-Canadian holdings in Canadian archival repositories. It is the most comprehensive compilation of its kind and is unlikely to be superceded in the foreseeable future.
This guide provides a detailed look at a wide range of collections, both large and small, throughout Canada. Among these are the collections at Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa (the largest public collection of materials) and the Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre "Oseredok" in Winnipeg (the country's largest community archives), the Provincial Archives of Central Canada and the Prairies, the archives of the Ukrainian Catholic Church of Canada and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada, various university archives, and the like. The holdings are provided a thorough description, including accession numbers, size and dates, and a detailed content description. The guide covers most, if not all of the bases, where one might find archival information in Canada about Ukrainians.
This book is a joint publication of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, the State Committee for Archives of Ukraine, and the Ukrainian Scholarly Research Institute of Archival Science and Documentation.
