Digital Collections and Archives

The Digital Collections + Archives Unit will close on May 31, 2014. All items in the archives will be stored and inaccessible until such a time that the college has the ability to properly handle them. 


All digital material held by the Digital Collections + Archives unit is available for download as part of the Digital Content Library, a collaboration between CDes and CLA which is open to the entire University community. Images are available for educational use consistent with the fair use provisions of U.S. copyright law. All images, audio, and video currently on the Digital Content Library will stay available. However, with the closure of the Digital Collections + Archives, the rights to the images, which include copyright and reproduction rights, will now fall under the College of Liberal Arts copyright policy and they will have authority over the photos. If you do not want your images to fall under their control, please contact to have your images taken off the site.


Unfortunately, the creation of images, audio, and video is no longer available within the College of Design. If you are unable to find an image you are looking for on the Digital Content Library, please refer to the Additional Resources. If you need something digitized, the Digital Library Services department of the University Libraries provides digitization services for University faculty, staff and students at a reasonable cost.
