Research Resources

Our Archives contains unique and original documents, photographs, maps, oral history recordings, and ephemera, which are stored in a climate-controlled environment. The contents have been indexed in a searchable database.

The new Online Archives contains our entire descriptive database along with digitized content. Browse nearly 4,000 digitized images, listen to oral history interviews, or search our entire archival database on this site. New descriptions and digitized material will be added as they become available.

Descriptions of our collections are also available on MemoryBC, which provides a searchable database of the materials available at nearly 200 archival repositories in British Columbia.

We maintain informational files on subjects of local interest, including families, organizations and events. Descriptions of the Information Files are available in our Online Archives.

The Reference Library contains books relating to the area’s social and natural history, as well as books by local authors. We also have a complete set of the Whaletown National Enquirer.
