Search All - Field Trial

Search All allows you to search the resources of Library and Archives Canada (LAC). LAC combines the holdings of the former National Archives of Canada and the former National Library of Canada.

These resources include:

  • LAC's website;
  • LAC's library catalogue of our published holdings, as well as locations of published materials from over 1300 contributing Canadian libraries; and
  • the following archival research tools:
    General Inventory
    Government of Canada files
    Métis Scrip
    War Diaries of the First World War
    Prime Ministers' Fonds

You can search all of LAC's collections at once, or you can limit your search to an individual collection. Search All is being launched as a field trial to encourage participation in its development. Send us your ideas about Search All by email.

Try Search All or use the search box located in the top-right corner of the LAC Homepage.
