Registration of Researchers:
All researchers are required to register with the Archivist prior to accessing any records.

Handling Records:

Due to the unique and irreplaceable nature of archival records, strict handling polices are enforced. Researchers will be provided with cotton gloves when using primary source records. Archives Staff reserve the right to restrict access to original documents, where microfilm or other facsimile exists, and to fragile documents.

Oxford County Archives on Social Media

The Oxford County Archives has been working hard to make our records more accessible. We regularly post updates about or programs and services on the Oxford County Facebook page. The Archives is also active on Instagram where we share historical photographs and records from our collection and post snapshots of our work behind the scenes. You can check us out on Instagram by following : @oxfordcountyarchives, or by clicking on the link under the adjacent "Quick Links" section.
