The site provides access to thousands of digitized archival records pertaining to the students, alumni, faculty and staff of McGill University who contributed to the Second World War effort. The records are fully searchable by name in the Search the War Records section of the site, where visitors will also find an overview of the archival material and the context in which it was created.

In February 2014, the Book of Remembrance housed in Memorial Hall was removed to be carefully restored by a conservator. After five months of restoration and conservation work, the Book of Remembrance was returned to the McGill University Archives for digitization. To learn more and view the book click here.
