Archive FAQ

What’s involved in actually gaining access to the content of these collections?

E-mail Sandy Ayer, the archivist, at sayer@ambrose.edu and let him know the topic you’re interested in researching. He’ll probably ask you a few clarifying questions to frame your research question as precisely as possible. He’ll then scan you the relevant documents and/or photos and e-mail them to you as attachments. If you live in the Calgary area and need to consult the materials on site, he’ll set up an appointment with you and retrieve the relevant documents, etc., when you arrive.

Why don’t some of the collections listed in the subject index have inventories?

Archival collections typically consist of a combination of inventoried and as yet un-inventoried collections. Sandy Ayer, the archivist, would be happy to search both kinds of collections to provide you with the information, documents, photographs, or media that you would like to consult. He may need a bit of lead time, so please contact him at sayer@ambrose.edu before visiting the archives. In many cases he’ll be able simply to e-mail you what you need.

How do I donate materials to the archives?

If you have personal papers, photos, audio-visual media, or historical artifacts that you’d like to donate to the archives, please contact Sandy Ayer at sayer@ambrose.edu. Please consult our mission statement to get some idea of the subject areas in which we collect. We will not, unfortunately, be able to provide you with a gift-in-kind receipt.

New Catalogue Search!

We have successfully completed our migration to a new Library System!
Some functions of the catalogue (as well as login and accounts) will look a little different, so please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

New Account Logins

To access your account, click on the "My Library Account" button. This will direct you to the new catalog search, where you can access your account by clicking "My Account", then "Log In" in the top right corner. 

For Ambrose Students, Faculty and Staff - use your Ambrose credentials (full email and password) to log in to your account. 

For Community Members, you'll be asked to provide your email address. You will then recieve a link via email, which will allow you access to your account for one hour.
