Enjoy browsing descriptions and images of a sample of our Collection. Currently, only a small portion of the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre's Collection is searchable through this site. We are adding more records on a monthly basis.
If you are unable to find the objects, photographs or records you are searching for, please call or visit the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre so our staff may assist you with your search.
Many of our photographs may be purchased in digital or hard copy form. You may click on the "Request Image" button in the lower right corner of any image for a fee list and contact form, or contact us by telephone or email for assistance in completing our Photographic Reprints Order Form.
Photographs may be found in both the "Photos" and "Archives" catalogues. You may search all catalogues at once using "Keyword Search" or "Advanced Search." If searching the Object Name Field in "Advanced Search," object names may include: "photograph", "print, photographic", "image, digital", "postcard", "postcard, picture" "negative*, or "transparency*"
The Keyword Search button allows you to perform a general search across multiple fields for any catalogue records.
The Advanced Search button can help you be more specific with your search. You can search for a word or phrase within a particular search category or use multiple categories to further narrow down your search results. For example, searching White in the People field will bring up any records associated with a member of the White family, without having to sift through black & white photographs. Phrase searching with quotes and use of wildcards (*) are also available in Advanced Search.
The Random Images button is a great way to just browse the collection. Each Random Images page displays a random assortment of images from the records online. If something piques your interest, click the thumbnail to view a larger version of the image.
The catalogue buttons can also help narrow down your search by only searching within a select catalog. If you only want to search for Objects, click the Objects button and type in your keyword(s) or phrase. You may also browse records within that catalogue without performing a search. Phrase searching, wildcards (*) as well as AND/OR statements are available when performing catalogue searches.
