The Visual Resources collection includes digital images and the picture file. Staff provide visual materials to support teaching and learning at the University of the Arts, and instruction in the use of those materials. The collection includes digital images and the picture file. The digital image collection is available to UArts faculty, staff, and students. Members of the University community as well as outside scholars are welcome to view the items in Visual Resources and Special Collections.
Digital image collections are accessible through ARTstor and the UArts Visual Resources Collection in ARTstor. 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 staff, 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.
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.
Special Collections include rare books, Book Arts, and UArts theses. These materials may be used in Visual Resources and Special Collections. Arrangements can be made by faculty to view these materials with their classes in other University Libraries spaces.
