Laurentian University
With more than 9,000 full-time and part-time students, Laurentian University is a mirror of Canada itself. One of only two bilingual universities in the country, we have a significant Native Student population and a growing number of international students. The Gardner Northern Collection of the Laurentian University Library consists of material donated by Gerard Gardner in 1980, or subsequently acquired, and is particularly strong in the biological sciences for Arctic and sub-Arctic eastern Canada. There is also a unique collection of 80,000 press clippings (1930-) for which various catalogues have been published. The Department of Biology has operated the Eskimo Point Arctic Research Centre since 1987.
