NSCAD University’s Institutional Repository

Our repository features items of importance to the history of NSCAD University, including a collection of digitized scrapbooks containing NSCAD memorabilia dating back to 1921, a collection of books authored by past principal Elizabeth Styring Nutt, a digitized audio archive of lectures, performances, and sound art, and a collection of digital theses of our MFA, MDes, and MA graduates dating from 1975 to present. We anticipate that this site will be used as the institutional repository for NSCAD history, past and present, to exhibit NSCAD's creative and scholarly output to the NSCAD community and beyond.
