Information about hundreds of thousands of UC Irvine photographs now searchable August 13, 2012Posted by ucisca in Photographs, University Archives.
We heard you! You asked for access to more historical images of UC Irvine…and we are proud to announce the availability of inventories for hundreds of thousands of images from UCI Special Collections & Archives!
The University of California, Irvine, Communications Photographs (AS-061) consists of nearly 275,000 photographs depicting the campus, students, faculty, staff, events, and surrounding region of UC Irvine since 1952. In the past, we had to search a lengthy inventory of descriptions from the collection to find appropriate images for researcher use. Users would need to know who or what they wanted before they could see anything, since our inventories were so long and the collection, at over 170 boxes, was far too large for casual browsing.
This month, we are happy to announce that these inventories are now freely available and full-text searchable!
