This series consists of thematic and format-based finding aids created by the Archivists, or students and volunteers under their direction, to assist researchers looking for material related to specific subjects across collections (MS fonds or RG [government] records collections) or materials in various formats of records (i.e. publications or posters). There is usually an informative essay providing context about the subject. The material may be divided into subsections in a table of contents to assist the researcher in selecting the kinds of material desired for their search. Each finding aid will be as comprehensive as possible at the time it was created - but other material may be discoverable in the archives as more material is processed or added to collections.

The Edmonton Telephones Corporation (ED Tel) was created in 1990 as a result of the provincial Telecommunications Act, which allowed municipalities to provide telecommunications services and products through a wholly-owned subsidiary corporation, but not through a City department. In early 1994 the outgoing ED Tel President publicly raised the idea of selling the utility. Ultimately the Edmonton Telephones Corporation was sold to Telus on March 10, 1995 for $470,221,872.
