S.J. McKee Archives at Brandon University

The S.J. McKee Archives at Brandon University houses a wide-ranging collection of unpublished archival records related to the history of Brandon College / Brandon University and the Manitoba Pool Elevators, as well as documenting the history of the City of Brandon and southwestern Manitoba.

A new search engine, based on our Andornot Discovery Interface is now available at https://archives.brandonu.ca. Features such as spelling corrections, relevancy-ranked results, and facets to refine searches, help users to quickly find resources of interest to them.

S.J. McKee Archives at Brandon University

The site includes over 5,000 digitized photographs, as well records for the Brandon University Art Collection, with images to come for this collection. Oral history recordings will also be added in the future.  Behind the scenes, these different types of collections or materials are managed in separate DB/TextWorks databases. This new search interface is thus a huge improvement allowing researchers to easily find all related materials with one search.

"I’ve received only positive feedback about the new interface. People seem to like the design, the simplicity, and the functionality of the site." – Christy Henry, University Archivist
