Accessing the archives

While anyone can use the SAIT Archives, 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.

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 do not allow food or drink in the reading room, and pencils are only permitted for note-taking.

Public access to institutional records transferred to the archives shall be determined by Alberta's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Access to the archives is by appointment only.
