Archives & Manuscripts
Scholars, authors, museum professionals, artists, and students are invited to use the archives for a wide range of projects including books, bibliographies, films, and dissertations focusing on photography as well as cultural studies, environmental history, music, and many other areas.
Educators: please visit our Learn page for options about our photographic education opportunities and LENS initiative.
In the interest of the health and welfare of our patrons, staff, faculty, and students, the Center will be closed effective immediately until further notice. This includes our galleries as well as our programs, events, and research spaces. We believe this is a responsible and ethical step, and while it is disappointing to cancel events, we look forward to coming together again as a community when the time is right.

Searching tip: search across all of the Center’s finding aids by using the search box in the top right corner of this page, and enter the last name (or gallery name) of the collection you are searching for and the term “finding aid.” For example, searching for “weston finding aid” will result in a list including Edward Weston’s finding aids, Brett Weston’s finding aids, and other related finding aids. A search for “weston” will find all of the collections containing information about Weston.
