Acquisition Strategy

The Delta Museum and Archives Society (DMAS) proactively acquires records of enduring value and makes them easily accessible in a variety of formats, which provides access to information about Delta and its residents, promotes and fosters community identity, and assists the Corporation preserve and access its archival records.

Community Records

The DMAS will acquire and solicit records of enduring value and make them easily accessible in a variety of formats in order to provide access to information about Delta and its residents, promote and foster community identity, and assist the Corporation of Delta to be open, transparent and accountable to the residents it serves.  The DMAS is interested in receiving private donations that reflect the social, cultural, political, economic or geographic landscape of Delta. The DMAS typically only acquires original, unique, authentic, reliable records for its collection.  Preference is given to records that can be made publicly accessible, although exceptions may be made for records of historical significance.  Records may consist of photographs (including slides or negatives), textual records, maps, audio-visual material, or newspapers that, in some capacity, document the history of Delta.

Public Records

The DMAS will acquire Corporation of Delta records identified as having archival value through the Corporation’s records management program and will facilitate their transfer to the Archives once they become inactive. Archival material includes those records created, received and accumulated during the course of practical civic activity by Council, and any department, office, committee, board, commission or agency of the Corporation of Delta that are to be preserved because of their continuing value to the organization.
