York Libraries launch a new digital depository of research

To commemorate the upcoming 50th anniversary of York University, the Clara Thomas Archives & Special Collections has compiled a collection of photographs that celebrate York’s rapid evolution and growth into Canada’s third largest university.


From early gymnastics photos of Canadian shuttle astronaut and York alumnus Steve MacLean, to vintage TTC buses, Canada geese and student protests, there is a wealth of visual imagery in York Space, the new digital depository of research.
