The Art History Visual Resources Collection supports teaching and study of worldwide art history from the prehistoric period to the present day. The Visual Resources Curator maintains and expands the digital image collection, creates new images on request, and provides help with finding and using images. The Art History Digital Collection is available to the university community for educational and non-profit use through ARTstor, the image library for arts and sciences accessible through University Libraries.

The Visual Resources Collection offers training for using the image collection, provides help with finding open access images on the web, and offers guidelines on copyright for using images.

The Visual Resources Collection provides scanning services for faculty and students for classroom presentations and projects, conferences, and publications. Faculty and students are welcome to use the slide and flatbed scanners in the Visual Resources office.
