Historical Textbook Collection

Historical Textbook Collection

The Historical Textbook Collection consists of materials authorized by the Department of Education for use in Saskatchewan elementary and secondary schools, from 1884-1992. This Collection includes textbooks, teachers' editions, curriculum guides, programmes of study, recommended children's literature, and selected audiovisual materials. The Collection also includes school materials that have archival value.

Historical Textbook


The Historical Textbook Collection is located on the west side of the Education Library. This is a research collection and may be used within the Education Library only. Many materials in this collection are fragile; we do ask that you handle the resources carefully.
