The Visual Resources Collection provides visual materials to support teaching and learning at the University of the Arts. The collection includes digital images, slides, and the picture file.
The digital collections are accessible through ARTstor and the UArts Visual Resources Collection in ARTstor (formerly MDID). ARTstor is a digital collection of over one million images in the areas of art, architecture, the humanities, and social sciences, with an offline image viewer that can be used to display and manage images.
The UArts Visual Resources Collection in ARTstor is a digital collection created by the Visual Resources Collection, with over 15,000 images and is hosted by ARTstor. It is built largely on faculty requests, and contains images that are not available in the main ARTstor collection.
The slide collection consists of over 175,000 slides of art and architecture from prehistory through modern art. Although slides are no longer created, the slide collection is still available for faculty use.
Located in the lower level of the Greenfield Library, the picture file consists of mounted images taken from various sources such as books, magazines, and catalogues. The pictures are organized by subject, and may be borrowed by faculty, staff, and students.
