Appointments

Access to the Military History Research Centre (MHRC) is by appointment only. Please contact vimy.biblio@warmuseum.ca to book an appointment.

Appointments

At present we are only open for appointments Wednesday and Thursday in two time slots: morning (10 a.m.-1 p.m.) and afternoon (1-4 p.m.). Appointments must be made at least three days in advance. However, it is recommended that you book 2-3 weeks in advance due to demand.

If you are visiting from out of town or anticipate requiring more time than a single time slot, arrangements can be made.

A museum ticket is not required for an appointment to the MHRC.

Materials

We require a list of materials you wish to consult during your visit submitted in advance: 72 hours for archival material and 24 hours for library material. This ensures that your material is pulled for you when you arrive to best make use of your time. If, during your visit, you require us to pull more items from the library a staff member will provide guidelines in relation to handling materials and COVID-19 or assistance.

COVID-19 and the MHRC

Please consult the Museum’s page outlining COVID-19 safety procedures. Visitors to the MHRC must follow the same protocols.

Further instructions on material handling and using the MHRC space regarding COVID-19 will be provided when you arrive.
