Self-service copying

Consult the Guide to Self-Service Copying (PDF) for more information.

Microfilm scans and prints

Clients may make microfilm scans and prints from microfilm in the Archives Research Room. The Archives has microfilm printer/scanners available for public use. Microfilm numbers may be identified through the Keystone database. (Microfilm may also be ordered through our microfilm loan program.)

  • Clients may sign up for a time slot on the sign-up sheet in the Archives Research Room to use a microfilm printer/scanner.
  • Clients may bring a USB memory stick or CD to save microfilm scans.
  • There is no charge for microfilm scans. It is a free self-service option. Microfilm prints cost 50 cents per page, plus applicable taxes.
  • The Archives of Manitoba does not make microfilm scans or prints for clients.

Photographing records

Clients may photograph archival records, provided that the condition of the records is not compromised and that there are no restrictions on copying. Easels, cradles and weights may be provided by Archives staff, as needed, to support the records.

Moving images and sound reproductions:

Clients may reproduce access copies of moving image and sound records for research or private study using their own equipment providing there are no copy restrictions on the records.
