The History of Art Department's Visual Resources Collection is a unique campus resource currently maintaining 150,000 35mm slides, and approximately 25,000 digital images on Photo-CD. Areas covered include Western architecture, sculpture, and painting from prehistoric times to the present and Asian art concentrating on East Asian painting and archaeology. Special collections housed in the Slide Library include a Dance and Costume slide Collection and a Theatre slide collection. These materials are used primarily for instructional purposes in UCR undergraduate and graduate courses.
Materials circulate to faculty members and graduate or seminar students only. Others may utilize the collection with permission from the instructors and the curator.
