Naming Edmonton

This bibliography is designed to situate the records used in the Naming Edmonton virtual exhibit in their larger context. It shows where these disparate records come from by grouping them by creator rather than by subject.

Wherever possible, links to catalogue entries in the City Archives’ online catalogue have been included. There is also further catalogue information in the Reference Room at the City of Edmonton Archives.

For an explanation of terms and acronyms, see our Virtual Exhibit Glossary.
