|CCA Collection: Vertical files
Since 1985 the CCA Library has maintained vertical files relating to architecture and the built environment, viewed in the broadest sense. It also maintains files on institutions and cultural activities. These files include ephemeral material such as exhibition announcements and invitations, as well as photocopies of newspaper clippings relating to architecture, principally from the Montréal newspapers and the New York Times.
All of the vertical files relating to individuals and firms are included in the CCA Library catalogue. Numerous files relating to corporate bodies and subjects are also included, but a number of files have not been catalogued. Uncatalogued files have been grouped in general categories and the links below provide access to lists of the files in each category. File names are created internally for information purposes and are not standardised.
These files may be consulted by appointment. Please consult Using the Library Collection for details.
