General Inventory


The National Archives of Canada are pleased to announce that ArchiviaNet has recently expanded to include the General Inventory of fonds, collections and accessions ( This comprehensive research tool gives our on-line visitors web-access to high level descriptions covering a significant portion of the archival holdings of the National Archives of Canada.

The launch of the General Inventory is the culmination of a year-long effort to transfer data from the automated system describing National Archives holdings (MIKAN) to a web-based interface (ArchiviaNet). It also represents a huge accomplishment by all the National Archives staff who have been involved in this sustained effort to implement control standards, create and populate the database with descriptions of our holdings.

This version of the General Inventory offers a developing view of the National Archives of Canada holdings. Its content will progressively expand to include a more comprehensive view of government and private holdings in all media. In the case of government records, descriptions will be made available in both official languages.
