Archival images make interesting, attractive and affordable decorations for your home or office. They're great gifts too!
Photographs can be purchased as digital files or we can print them for you in several sizes from 20x24 pictures for large wall spaces to 5x7 pictures suitable for smaller walls or for display on your desk or shelves. We also have panoramic photographs in a variety of lengths. See our Order Form for more information.

E-mail and Phone Service
It’s a good idea to contact the Archives prior to your visit or if you are unable to come into the Archives. We may be able to find answers to simple research questions for you. We’ll also help you determine if we have material of interest to you in our holdings.
If we do have records relating to your interests, we can retrieve some preliminary material and have it on hold for you ready for your visit.
Or, we can refer you somewhere that might have what you’re looking for (the Provincial Archives of Alberta for example).
When you visit the Archives, a reference archivist is available in our reference room to help you. This includes orientating new users to our self-serve material and how to use our finding aids.
Typically, archivists don’t do research for you. Instead, we’re here to point you in the right direction so you can find the answers yourself with the materials provided.
For help with research needs, we recommend contacting the Alberta Genealogical Society or hiring a professional researcher to assist you.
