Yukon Archives

The Yukon Archives acquires, preserves, and provides access to the Yukon's documentary heritage. Photocopy, map and photograph reproduction services are available.

The Archives can also order reference material for patrons from other institutions through inter-library loan.

If you are unable to visit the Archives in person, reference assistance is available through correspondence. The Archives also offers periodic lecture series, film showings, displays, radio broadcasts, and newspaper articles on selected topics in Yukon history.
