The Center for Creative Photography is dedicated to helping bring the world of photography to life in your study and research efforts. We have an invaluable selection of archives, rare books and reference materials, and oral histories for your scholarly needs, as well as an inviting Study Center for your use.

January 2021 update: The Study Center remains closed due to the University of Arizona’s COVID-19 response and safety response policy. Research services provided through the Volkerding Study Center are extremely limited through the Spring 2021 semester due to COVID-19. At this time, staff have limited onsite access and are unable to accommodate requests that require access to the physical collections. While staff may be able to fulfill some requests, the vast majority of archives have not yet been digitized, and the majority of requests cannot be fulfilled until building access is restored. If you would still like to submit a request, please use the form below and note that it may be several months before we are able to provide assistance.
