The Elizabeth D. Alley Visual Resources Collection (VRC), named for the curator who founded the collection in 1967, is conveniently located in Room 1107 in the Architecture Building. The VRC consists of more than 400,000 slides and digital images documenting architecture and the urban scene from pre-historic times to the present. Related topics include urban design, historic preservation, real estate development, art, landscape architecture, as well as events around the School. Other visual materials include over 400 DVDs and videotapes, along with lantern slides and photographs. Images are acquired through site photography, scanning materials, commercial vendors, and donations from faculty and students.
The School's faculty and students are encouraged to use the current slides as a starting point for research. We are happy to scan items that are not yet in the digital realm. Images and other materials may be used for presentations in School classes and for research.
Copyright: All materials in the VRC are subject to copyright restrictions. Images in the VRC are used for educational purposes only.
Equipment: LCD projectors, digital cameras, video cameras and model photography equipment are available to students and faculty for use in class and for research and project site documentation.
