OPS Library Collection

Provided is a complete, updated list of the holdings of the Ottawa Philatelic Societies Litetature Collection referred to hereafter as "The Library".  Developed over a long time, the OPS library is sizeable and ever expanding.  Great efforts have been made recently to provide an electronic database of the holdings.  Those efforts have produced very fruitful results.

 

Following is a downloadable file, in excel format, that has listings for the library holdings by:

  • Reference Number (in order of attainment)
  • Title (many foreign items and periodicals are included)
  • Author (cross referenced when numerous authors noted of a single title.

The Society is extermely fortunate to have attained the committed service of volunteers who conduct the necessary filing and manage the library so that members have ready access to the materials.  Also included within the holdings are numerous documents pertaining the "events" of the OPS over the past century, including minutes, financial logs, newspaper clippings, photographs, etc.

While this spreadsheet format is the first electronic leap, it is hoped that progressively, the library holdings will be reformatted to also produce an interactive, visual companion for this website. 

 

It may soon be possible to make certain books available for download and/or posted for online viewing to OPS members.  The technical steps that might be required  are currently being explored.  Of course, none of this would have been possible without the tremendous support of our wonderful library team - Dave, Michel and Henri - and their numerous predecessors.
