In the fall of 2005, the Social Studies/Native Studies Department received $5000 from the Heritage Grants Programme, Manitoba Culture, Heritage, and Tourism to aid in the development of a photograph archive relevant to the communities of Frontier School Division. During the winter of 2005-2006, three hundred and sixty five photographs were prepared for distribution throughout Frontier School Division via Library Services in Winnipeg. With the infrastructure in place, we hope to add additional images, including photographs illustrating the history of the school division itself.
The photographs have been encased in acid-free mylar sleeves for protection and copies are now available on loan through Library Serivces at the Winnipeg Office, Frontier School Division. Please see the Reference Guide for thumbnail images of the photos, which are provided online to assist teachers and students as they look for pertinent images to illustrate lessons and assignments.

Teachers and students may borrow relevant photographs from the Photo Archive for up to four weeks for use in the classroom (e.g. to illustrate lessons or for an in-class presentation). Medium resolution digital copies are available from the online Reference Guide. Higher resolution digital images (for printed classroom materials and/or assignments) are available on CD at cost (materials & shipping) by request from the Social Studies/Native Studies Department. For more information on how to borrow photographs from the Photo Archive, contact Library Services at the Division Office in Winnipeg via email or call (204) 775-9741.
