The PWNHC holds in trust for the public a large collection of objects that represent the peoples and cultures of the NWT, and produces exhibitions that tell stories about the land, people and history of the NWT. However, the PWNHC is “more than a museum”. In addition to its exhibits, collections and conservation programs, the PWNHC houses the NWT Archives, provides technical, logistic and financial support to individuals and organizations involved in cultural activities and the arts, and authorizes archaeological studies in the NWT.

This online library includes peer and non-peer reviewed articles, books, and book sections that were authored or co-authored by scholars and researchers affiliated with the PWNHC at the time of publication.
