Welcome to the Archives Association of British Columbia
The Archives Association of British Columbia represents individual and institutional members, maintains resources for the public and the archival community, and advocate for Archives in the province.
Are you searching for archives? Please visit MemoryBC.ca, our portal to descriptions of archival materials preserved in repositories throughout the province.
Our mission is to foster the development of the provincial archival community in order to better preserve and promote access to British Columbia's documentary heritage. We assist the community through our Educational Advisory, Preservation, and Network Services and maintenance of the provincial catalogue (MemoryBC.ca). See the About Us section for further details and how to contact us.

offer streamed roundtable
In an effort to provide continuing education to all members in our fair province and beyond, the AABC is planning to hold a roundtable discussion in Vancouver on the following topic:
Poor Little Orphaned Photographs
How do you manage photographs when you cannot determine who owned them or who holds copyright over them or you don't know anything about the content of the photograph itself. Do you have a policy or procedures or standard practices? How do you balance the issues of ownership and copyright with making them accessible for research and display? Do you digitize them anyway? Do you make them available on the Internet?
AABC Letter to Minister Moore Re NADP

The AABC, and the archival community, would greatly benefit from operational assistance and/or special project support. However, at present archives and archives-only organizations are not eligible for BC Arts Council Funding. Let's change that!
