Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management Website
Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management (Public Archives of Nova Scotia) is pleased to announce a completely redesigned web site, still at the old URL (http://www.nsarm.ednet.ns.ca). The new site is larger, more flexible, and has been created with both genealogists and general researchers in mind. In addition to basic information on services and activities, several new on-line resources will greatly enhance site use and research-strategy design. Site construction is ongoing, so keep the location book-marked for new developments!
New on-line resources at NSARM include:
1. BosaNova, NSARM's new automated guide to archival holdings. This database of archival finding aids incorporates both government and private-sector records. It does not include descriptions of all NSARM holdings, but is a good starting point for planning on-site research. BosaNova will be updated regularly with information about newly-available material or older, re-described holdings.
2. An electronic link from BosaNova to the Council of Nova Scotia Archives ArchWay database (, as part of the larger Canadian Archival Information Network (CAIN) initiative now underway.
3. NSARM's first Virtual Exhibit, "Halifax and Its People / 1749-1999," developed to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the founding of Halifax. The exhibit presents some 150 images from the NSARM holdings, with accompanying captions and text. It has been designed as an on-line educational, research and general-interest tool, highlighting the people of Halifax with the changing community as their backdrop. Come and browse!
