Photo Archives (Fine Arts Library)

Over 58,000 photographs and reproductions make up the Library’s photo archives collection. The collection covers art and architecture of the Western tradition up to the mid-20th century, with significant holdings of African and Asian art.

We also have a special set of photo archives, Great Drawings of All Times, which includes important master drawings.

Anyone with a valid University ID or Indiana resident borrower’s card can check out up to 25 plates at a time. The collection is housed in filing cabinets in the east end of the Reading Room. Just browse through the cabinets or ask at the front desk for help finding what you need.

Check out some plates today!

If you find a dead link anywhere on this website, please email, or notify a staff member at the Fine Arts Library. Thanks!
