The Emerging Alberta Image Database includes 3200 photographs and political cartoons taken from the Alberta Report fonds held at the Provincial Archives of Alberta. To provide context, 914 Alberta Report magazine covers are available along with a table of contents for the magazine.

Each era includes a number of representative themes. For example, the Oil Boom includes Politics; Arts and Culture; & Sports and Leisure. The representative themes used for the different eras, Oil Boom, Challenging Times and the New Albertan Spirit, are a sample of the 13 themes which may be used to search the photo and image collection.
