The Canadian Museum of History archival collection has extensive holdings of unpublished documents, photographs and audio-visual material and is a major research centre specializing in anthropology, archaeology, Aboriginal and Métis peoples, folklore, multicultural communities, social and political history, material culture, linguistics and museology in Canada. In addition, files which document the Museum’s history, exhibitions, collections and productions fall under the auspices of the Archives. It houses a wide-ranging collection of archival records (such as field notes, letters, research reports, maps, conference papers, folk tales, legends and songs, musical transcriptions, sound recordings, films and videos). The collections, which take up 4 kilometers of shelf space, date from the 1860s to the present.
