What you will find at our library

The Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women Library and Information Services serves the Advisory Council staff, Advisory Council members, provincial and federal government personnel, educators, students and the general public.

We can answer your questions, find information relating to women's issues, or refer you to other sources that can help.

The Library collection supports the Advisory Council's mandate. Our collection covers many issues such as violence, law, health, employment, and poverty. We have materials relating to specialized populations of women such as young women, Black, Indigenous, immigrant and women with disabilities.

The Library is located in Council's office at 6169 Quinpool Road, suite 202, Halifax, and is open to the public Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for drop-in or by appointment. In general, if you call or email before you arrive, we can set aside materials you request.
