General HIV and AIDS

This subseries contains a large variety of materials which provide primary prevention information on HIV and AIDS. The largest single topic covered is 'Condom Use', followed by 'Testing' and 'Counselling.' The items with creative packaging were all created in Alberta, most by the AIDS Network of Edmonton Society which include actual condoms. This is the only series which includes correspondence in the form of 2 letters from Barry Breau the Executive Director of the AIDS Network of Edmonton. The 'pak' from this group includes 3 flattened "Cootie Catchers" on testing, safe sex, and talking about HIV / AIDS. Instructions and pre-folded photocopies of the Cootie Catchers have been included; please do not fold the originals.

Adolescents

This subseries contains information specifically for adolescents, so this is the most illustrated and colourful series in the collection. The majority of the comic book format items in the collection are in this series. There is one comic book specifically for Native American adolescents. "Sex on Earth and other planets" is unique in that it is a comic book conceived, designed and written by teens for teens; created in Los Angeles in 1992, it is present in both English and Spanish. A Hawaiian comic book called "Bloodstream Follies" presents a cast of seven teens who expose themselves to AIDS via sharing needles for recreational drugs and steroids, and unsafe heterosexual and homosexual sex; it co-stars the crew of a ship of AIDS viruses. The brochures in this series contain titles like "Teens & AIDS" and "Could I get it?"

Caregivers

Information for Friends, Relatives and any non-health care professional who are caring for people who are HIV+ or Living with AIDS. The material aimed at parents are brochures with question and answer scenarios and many have titles that begin with the phrase "Talking to your ..." There is one set of two from the National Safety Council of the United States: "What you should know" & "What your teenager will be learning about AIDS,"

The 'Friends' sub-series provide several examples of similar information, with titles like "When a Friend has AIDS". There is one booklet specific to the effects of HIV / AIDS related dementia with practical tips on accommodations and safety precautions.

Note that with the 'Parents' sub-series there are three items regarding sexuality that are completely unrelated to HIV / AIDS; these provide advice and answers to parents who are concerned that their child might be a homosexual. As these items are aimed at parents they are included here rather than the 'Sexuality' series which is aimed at people of a specific sexuality.

Prairie Ephemera Collection

  • FC 3234.2 P732
  • Collection
  • 1800s and 1900s

The Prairie Ephemera collection consists of a wide range of photographic and manuscript materials related to the social, economic, and cultural development of the Prairie Provinces. The photographic collection – which consists of both individual images and albums – is highly varied. Scenes of farm and urban life are both well represented. The textual materials are equally diverse, including letters, diaries, meeting minutes, political campaign materials, song books, stock certificates, performance programs and advertisements, among other things. These materials include first hand accounts from homesteaders and visitors to the region discussing the nature of Prairie life in the pioneer period and through the 20th Century.

David McKnight Fonds

  • PS 8237 M6 D38
  • Fonds
  • [197-]-2012

Fonds consist of David McKnight’s Canadian Little Magazine and Small Press archive, reflecting his interest in documenting the history of this genre of Canadian publishing, and include the pioneering work in the field done by Wynne Francis whose research files form part of the fonds. Through both of their collecting, the David McKnight fonds consists of materials which cover the history of Canadian small press publishing from 1923-2010.

The designation of the series was arrived at after considering the ordering of the material as it was received at Bruce Peel Special Collections. It was clear that there was an original ordering of the files, often according to an alphabetical or chronological scheme, and the files had titles. David McKnight separated his files broadly into those associated with his mentor and advisor, Wynne Francis, and his own research/collection files, and as much as possible, this structure is maintained. Series titles were arrived at after considering the collection in its entirety, and the apparent order implied by McKnight’s file listings and comments. The material was received in two shipments, but was intended as one donation, so some assignment of series and file titles, combining the material in the two shipments, was necessary. The records are almost all textual, although there are three microfilm reels, two cassette tapes, and two photographs.

Taking into consideration both the information provided by David McKnight in a letter to the Head of Bruce Peel Special Collections, and the contents of the records received, six series and several sub-series were established to better facilitate access to the collection.

The Salzburg Collection

  • Collection

The Salzburg Collection is one of the most important collections in Canada for Central European law studies. It represents the original law collection of the Seminary Library of the Archbishop of Salzburg, acquired by the University of Alberta in 1965. Bruce Peel Special Collections houses the pre-1800 publications, considered rare books. The newer, post-1800 publications, which represent about half of the collection, are housed in other locations, including the John A. Weir Memorial Law Library, the Research & Collections Resource Facility, and the Humanities and Social Sciences Library.

Following the recommendations of the Tridentine Council (Tridentinischer Konzil) of 1562, the Salzburg Provincial Council (Salzburger Provinzialkonzil) established the Archiepiscopal Seminary in Salzburg (Erzbischöfliches Priesterseminar zu Salzburg) with its decree of May 25, 1579. Its first statutes were written and signed in July 1579 by the rector, Georg Würfel. The library was founded at the same time as the seminary, with books contributed by the private library of the Archbishop.
