A Modern View of a City’s History via ArchivEra

April 08, 2024

The City of Regina Archives selected ArchivEra to manage their collection of over six million documents of legal, historical, administrative or financial significance.

In addition, visitors to their Virtual Archives will find over 25,000 early Regina photographs, more than 8,000 sets of architectural drawings, and legislative materials originating from the city (or relevant to it).

They will also find biographies of past mayors, the storied history of open-air stadium Taylor Field—named after First World War fighter pilot and rugby player Neil J. “Piffles” Taylor—and information about other notable events and figures that form a timeline of Regina’s history.

Dana Turgeon, Historical Information & Preservation Supervisor, told us their choice of ArchivEra was straightforward. They were already satisfied Lucidea clients through an earlier archival CMS, and given that ArchivEra more than met their new strategic and operational requirements, they licensed the software-as-a service (SaaS) version—with full approval from their IT group— and the implementation began.

Ms. Turgeon said the migration was complete well ahead of deadline, and the Client Services team members were unfailingly “helpful, knowledgeable, and prompt, with sector expertise that was very useful.”

Lucidea believes ArchivEra’s potential is limited only by its users’ imaginations. Despite the resource constraints so common in archives, the City of Regina Archives staff are certainly imagining and planning many compelling CMS related projects made possible by ArchivEra’s rich capabilities. We invite you to read their full success story here.
