Reading Room Services and Procedures
The Provincial Archives' Reading Room offers the full range of reference services described on this website. Finding aids for all collections are available to view and many are also available in the reading room.

If you wish to use the reading room at the Provincial Archives in-person, upon arrival our reference staff will ask you to complete a registration form and produce one piece of identification (preferably photo identification). The registration form includes a list of the rules and regulations which govern the use of our research materials and facilities. The form also includes clauses related to the protection of private information in our collections. Once you are registered, you will receive a research pass. We ask that you show this pass whenever you visit.
Patrons should be aware that some records at the Provincial Archives may have access restrictions. Each access request is reviewed individually. Please Note: The length of this review is dependent on the volume of records. Out-of-town researchers should take this into consideration when planning your research visit.
