Welcome to the online catalogue for the Esther Clark Wright Archives and Atlantic Baptist Archives at Acadia University!

Our Finding Aids and Baptist Record Lists provide archival descriptions of some, but not all, material in our holdings. New finding aids are added as they are created. Looking for something you don’t yet see here? Email us at or use the Ask Us form.

You can find archival material by using the simple search bar, using the advanced search function, or browsing. You can browse by clicking the Finding Aid or Baptist Records buttons located above.

We also host Digital Collections for the Esther Clark Wright Archives and the Vaughan Memorial Library’s Special Collections.

Digitized records from both Archives and Special Collections are hosted together on the Digital Collections browse page. You can search for Special Collections bibliographic descriptions in the library catalogue. Please note, Baptist Church records are not available digitally.

You can browse our digitized material by clicking the Digital Collections button located above, or use the simple search bar/advanced search option.
