Administrative history

It had been common practice to put small amounts of original material in clippings files. However, in 2015 the City of Edmonton Archives established a clippings committee to follow best practice and remove original archival material from the clippings files. The committee created a new classification within the private records (MS) collection and the government records (RG) collection to hold this material and make it accessible.

Custodial history

As original material is removed from the clippings files, it is reviewed by the Clippings Committee for consideration in other fonds/collections; material with no previous accession number is included in this MS, given an accession number upon final decision of placement.
Some items discovered within the collections possess intrinsic historic value, but do not contain enough material to constitute their own fonds. These items are added to this collection so that they can be findable.

Scope and content

The collection consists of original material removed from the City of Edmonton Archives Clippings collection as well as records found within the collections that either lack clear provenance or exist as discreet items.
