Welcome to the University of Alberta Archives

The Archives is closed until January 2018 to accomodate the move to South Campus. See you in the New Year!

The University of Alberta Archives is the official repository for the permanently valuable records of the University of Alberta and its affiliated institutions. Our holdings consist of material that is of continuing administrative, legal, or historical value. In addition to administrative and academic records, the Archives also collects University publications and the private papers of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and various university-related organizations. The Archives contains the records of many notable individuals and organizations relating to Alberta and federal politics, the oil sands, theater, education, and western settlement.

The Archives preserves over 9,000 linear metres of records. This includes textual records, photographs, audio and video recordings, film, microforms, architectural drawings, and maps.

For inquiries and further information, please contact the University of Alberta Archives at archives@ualberta.ca. For information about requesting material from BARD please review the Book and Record Depository (BARD) Request Form.

Please be advised of the following notices from the University of Alberta Archives:

  • The Archives is currently closed through December 2017 to accomodate the move to South Campus. We will open to researchers when the University of Alberta reopens in January 2018.
  • The University of Alberta Archives will not be accepting transfers or donations of material until July 2018.
