Using the Archives

Archives computerVisit our Archives! We are committed to providing access to our collections. Our archival and informational holdings are available to the public for either research or personal use. Settle into the Reading Corner in the exhibit room to browse our collection of photograph albums and history binders, or consult the Information Files in the May Ellingsen Archives Room.

Descriptions of our Archives collections are available in the Online Archives portal or the printed Finding Aid at the museum. If you wish to view the original documents or photographs after reading these descriptions, an archivist or staff member will assist you.

 Reproductions of material can be made for research purposes or for personal use. However, copying will only be done where it is permitted under Canadian Copyright Law, where it does not jeopardize the physical condition of the records, and where there are no donor restrictions. Researchers are encouraged to use their own cameras to photograph material for research purposes, especially where copying is not possible due to the fragility of the originals. To use reproductions for a purpose other than research or personal use, permission must be obtained from the Cortes Island Museum & Archives Society, using these PDF forms: Condition of Use Agreement for Archival Material and Photograph Reproduction Fees and Order Form.

We provide photographs and scans according to this File Specifications for Archival Images Scanning (PDF)
