Notable features of the collection include the newspaper clippings on microfilm produced by the Hong Kong Catholic Social Communication Office, 100 Chinese periodical titles published in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg, Carl T. Smith Collection that provides information on individuals, organizations, buildings, roads, land matters and important events relating to Hong Kong, Macau and China's coastal cities from the mid-19th century onward, and Senator Vivienne Poy’s Collection of speeches, archival records, research papers and publications during her fourteen years of service, 1998-2012, in the Senate of Canada.
