SAIT Archives can be used by anyone. However SAIT Archives staff shall grant permission to consult its archival records within the applicable legal framework of privacy, access, intellectual property and individual donor requirements.
Public access to records transferred to the Archives by SAIT shall be determined by Alberta's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
Archival material is, by definition, unique. Archival material is often one of a kind and cannot be replaced if mislaid or destroyed. As well, the records may be fragile and delicate. Researchers are encouraged to visit the archives to view the material and the archivist will provide instructions on the care and handling of the material. Also, for the safety of the records, the Archives does not allow food or drink in the reading room and pencils only are permitted for note-taking.
