Digital File Retrieval and Research Services

The Carstairs Heritage Centre staff and management reserve the right to place conditions on the completion of orders. The size of the order, copyright restrictions, conservation requirements, or staff scheduling/ workload may need special consideration.

Digital Photo Files

Researchers/guests must bring their own USB stick. Timeline for file retrieval is subject to staff availability and is to be agreed upon between the Museum Manager and the researcher at the time of the request.

Research Requests

All research requests are subject to staff time and availability.

 Research requests are completed by Museum staff with the assistance of trained volunteers and will utilize the Museum’s archival holdings, photograph collection, and/or research library.*

Optional service for Carstairs local sites/businesses/organizations: writing services and preparation/design of Museum style text panels including the research and photo files found by staff. Staff reserves the right to cap the amount of time spent on design as we are not a graphic design service but rather can create some simple text/visual panels in the style of what is presented in the museum.

*Please note: members of the public may access the museum’s research library by appointment but will not be granted access to archival materials for the safety and security of the collection. Any work in the archives will be done by Museum staff.
