Library and archives

The Avataq Cultural Institute’s Documentation and Archival Centre holds both our Library and Archives. The centre was created for the Nunavimmiut. It is accessible to a broad public including researchers, artists, etc.

The library holds more than 4,000 publications, mostly concerning Nunavik and the Nunavimmiut, as well as information about other Arctic regions and indigenous peoples. The library’s collection includes books and journals, magazines, atlases, dictionaries, audiovisual materials, etc.

Avataq’s major archival holdings include oral histories, manuscripts by Taamusi Qumaq and Peter Kasudluak, drawings by Tuumasi Kudluk, and the archives of various anthropologists.
