Hamilton Area Historical Research Resources

The research materials listed below represent the most heavily used resources in the Lloyd Reeds Map Collection (LRMC). They are used on a daily basis--not only by McMaster University students, staff, and faculty--but by many professional and non-professional members of the local community, including consulting engineers, environmental scientists, biologists, archaeologists, genealogists, historians and heritage planners, human and physical geographers, medical researchers, as well as employees of banks, law firms and insurance companies.

To learn more about the combined use of these resources for the purposes of conducting an environmental assessment or historical research, you may download the PowerPoint lecture, "Historical Resources for Environmental Assessments" from the Beck Lectures on Historical Cartography.
