Who can use the Archives

The Archives makes records available to a variety of users. First, it serves the University administration. Second, it makes records available to students and academic staff for research purposes and third, it is open to the general public. By serving these clients, the Archives helps carry out the administrative, teaching, research, and outreach functions of the University.


Visiting the Archives

Researchers visiting the Archives are required to complete a registration form and read the research regulations and the tariff of reproduction fees. The researcher is asked to indicate the subject and purpose of his/her research. This information and that derived from a reference interview, helps the Archives staff to provide assistance to the researchers. Archives staff will assist its users in undertaking their research by explaining how the reference services of the Archives operate, and how to use the finding aids. Once the Archives user has identified the sources which are needed for research, the staff will retrieve any non-restricted materials. Where access is restricted, Archives staff will indicate where access permission may be obtained.
