The fonds consists of records of the National Office, the administrative arm of the Royal Canadian College of Organists. Includes correspondence, minutes, publications, files about events and programs, sound recordings, photographs and records from local centres.

Some of the most significant historical records are found in Series 33 - Archives Alive!, and Series 35 - Archives Alive!-Presidents. The Archives Alive! project was started by RCCO Archivist/Historian Paul Chappel in 1996. Chappel used material in the RCCO archival collection to create scrapbooks, binders, and files of historical documents and photographs. Both original documents and reproductions of documents are found in these compilations. The project gathered together information about individual members, RCCO leaders, the British Organ Restoration Fund, and the history of the College. Additional information about RCCO history and people may be found in Series 12-Historian/Archivist files.
