The beta testing is over; we are officially releasing our Collection Search tool!

Banner: Collection Search 

Although the beta phase is over, we are continuously adding more functionalities and datasets to our Collection Search tool. Our goal is to offer an easy and efficient method to search our collection items from one location. Collection Search will eventually cover more than 100 stand-alone databases currently on our website.

Recently added

  • 1921 Census
  • Personnel Records of the First World War
  • Service Files of the Second World War—War Dead, 1939–1947
  • Aurora, the new catalogue to access LAC’s published holdings
  • Service Files of the Royal Canadian Navy, 1910–1941—Ledger Sheets
  • North West Mounted Police (NWMP)—Personnel Records, 1873–1904
  • Black Loyalist Refugees, 1782–1807—Port Roseway Associates

Many new functionalities

We now have a deep zoom feature for digitized images. You can even download the images directly from our viewer. We also added an advanced search option to enhance your search experience.

If you were familiar with the Image Search and Search All sections of our website, please note that they are fully integrated into the Collection Search tool and are no longer available in the Search the Collection top menu.

Please send us your feedback! We are always looking to improve your user experience and help you find what you need.
