“This online catalogue puts the rich history of our province directly at the fingertips of our citizens,” said Minister Responsible for the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan Ken Cheveldayoff. “This will enable a broader audience to access historical documents anytime, anywhere whether their research be personal or academic.”

Researchers can search over 900,000 descriptions of records from the Permanent Collection of the Provincial Archives.  The catalogue also provides online access to more than 300,000 digitized original archival records, primarily photographs and textual records.  New content is added as records are processed and digital projects are completed. 

“Our new catalogue provides a fresh, streamlined approach to accessing our holdings,” Provincial Archivist, Linda McIntyre said.  “It enables us to make content available online quickly and easily, for research use across the province and around the world.”
