Administrative history

Founded in 1994, the Central Alberta Regional Museum Network (CARMN) is a collective of approximately forty community-based museums. These museums work together to conduct and facilitate research and to create publications and educational programs dealing with the heritage of Central Alberta.

The goal of CARMN is to "share knowledge and resources to strengthen all member museums so that they can better serve their communities."

CARMN’s membership spreads across central Alberta, an area bounded roughly from Nordegg to Donalda, Devon to Calgary, and Rosebud to Banff.

Custodial history

Records were transferred in six accessions between 2001 and 2007. Records were created as per projects, daily business, and administrative functions of the Central Alberta Regional Museums Network.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of the records from administrative and project activities, as created, used, and accumulated by the Central Alberta Regional Museum Network staff, volunteers, and contractors.

The types of records include minutes, agendas, workshop information, grants information, research notes (Inventive Spirit project, CARMN Trails and Stopping Places project, ), reports (Unspoken Words of Aspenland, The Formation of Mind and Spirit, Lesbian and Gay Life in Alberta, Novacor), and photocopies of original records for research purposes.

No series assignment has been applied to the records in this fonds.
