You can use the Archives’ online database to search for records and complete a Records Request Form listing materials you would like to see. Some photographs and maps are scanned and can be seen online. In this case, the originals are unavailable.

Once you have completed your Records Request Form, bring it to the Archives. Staff will retrieve the records for you. Unlike library books, archival records cannot be borrowed. You must view them in the Research Hall.

Some records may require a Freedom of Information review or permission from the donor. You will need to fill out permission forms to see these records. Because of this, you will not be able to see them the same day you request them.

Also, some records are oversized and may require up to three days to pull from the Records Centre.

To see what access conditions apply, see the Records Request Form under “Access Conditions.”
