The IYAC/ACYI Archives contain a variety of materials. Unlike IYAC/ACYI library items, they are not catalogued for lending to members.

When the Archives Committee acquires materials appropriate for lending, they are sent to the Library Committee to be copied and catalogued for IYAC/ACYI Policy and Procedures Draft July 15, 2018 45

– Original incorporation documents

– Correspondence recounting the early history of the association

– Correspondence related to past legal proceedings against the association

– Archival photos on CD of past conferences such as Edmonton and Toronto with Guruji, as well as RIMYI intensives

– Directories from over the years

– AGM minutes from over the years
