ROM Resources[edit]

ROM Images Database

  • The ROM does not have its entire collections database online but we do have some images online. These records often display just tombstone information about an artifact which is a great place to start research.
  • Please note that the ROM Images Database is under copyright and images cannot be used for Wikipedia articles. However, you are more than welcome to stop by the museum and take you own photographs or ask MJMcGowan to upload images for you.

ROM Library and Archives

  • The ROM has an excellent reference library inside the museum that is open to the public, Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm.
  • The holdings in the library are non-circulating, however you can scan materials if you bring a flash drive.
  • There is no need to make an appointment to use this resource, simply arrive when the library is open. You do no need to pay admission to use the library.
  • Librarians in at the ROM are committed to helping people find information. Please ask them for help when you are trying to find resources.
  • Free WiFi is available.
