The Special Collections Research Center Image Bank is a repository intended to capture the digitized images of Special Collections materials created for incidental requests — such as those from patrons or from curatorial staff for outreach initiatives — and is not associated with full-scale digitization projects. The Image Bank is a phased project that will allow the Special Collections Research Center to quickly locate previously scanned images and keep our typically fragile materials from being handled more than necessary, to make images from our collections more easily discoverable, and to potentially leverage accumulated images into new Digital Collections, Exhibits, or other Outreach opportunities.
