OISE's Ontario Historical Education Collections (OHEC)

Using OHEC Materials

Borrowing Procedures:

Materials in the Ontario Historical Education Collections (OHEC) may be viewed in the reading room by appointment, and may not be borrowed. A staff member will determine if the condition of the material will allow it to be scanned or photocopied. A scanner and computer are available in the OHEC research room; click here for more information on scanning OHEC material.

Preparing for your visit:

Whenever possible, before your visit please provide the call numbers for the material you are interested in viewing from the collection. Most OHEC material is searchable in the U of T library catalogue; for best results follow our helpful hints for locating documents in the OHEC collection.


Please contact Monique Flaccavento (; 416-978-1867) to book an appointment to use materials in this collection.
Please note that there is no access to the OHEC collection during the pandemic.
