Visual Resources Collection

The Visual Resources Collection of the College of Built Environments serves faculty, students, and staff by providing digital images, scanning services, and slides to meet the classroom and research needs of the College.

The Collection consists of approximately 90,000 digital images and 130,000 circulating 35mm slides, representing the worlds of architecture and related fields, design, and art history. The digital image database is available online; please contact the VRC Director for an account to access this resource.

The Collection is always growing. New accessions include commercial image purchases, images requested by faculty from printed materials, on-site photography, donations of original images from faculty, and retrocataloged images from un-cataloged sections of the Collection.

The Visual Resources Collection is staffed by one full-time professional director and employs graduate assistants and Work Study students. See the right-hand column for location, hours, contact information, and a login link to the digital image database.
