Conservation Services

Please contact the Provincial Archives of Alberta at 780-417-1750 or at paa@gov.ab.ca to place these types of orders as they require an appointment with the Archives Retail Services Coordinator.

 

A Conservation Agreement is required for all materials being dropped off at the PAA.

FULL CONDITION REPORT/TREATMENT PROPOSAL

 

In order to start any Conservation Services, a Full Condition Report and Treatment Proposal must be completed prior to any conservation work.

 

A Conservation Agreement must be signed by the client and the Archives Retail Services Coordinator in order to leave any items at the PAA.

PHOTOGRAPHIC RESTORATION/COLOURIZATION, PER HOUR OF TECHNICIAN TIME

 

A professionally trained Digitization Technician will digitally alter the original item to client specifications.

 

There is a minimum $60.00 charge for all digital restoration services for the first hour of technician time. Every additional hour is an additional $60.00.

 

The client must first speak with the Archives and Retail Services Coordinator (archiveshop@gov.ab.ca) to determine the approximate time for completion before the project commences.
