Visual Resources Centre

The Visual Resources Centre (VRC) supports all staff and students in the provision and creation of digital images for teaching, learning and research, and provides access to the Department's remaining analogue image collections.  The Visual Resources Centre contains several photographic collections which may be accessed by all students, staff and Academic Visitors for study and research. These collections include 90,000 35mm slides, 65,000 19th- and early 20th-century glass lantern slides and a large photo archive; all of this material covers art and architecture from classic antiquity to the 20th-century. The Centre also holds other small collections of photograph albums, postcards and photographic prints.


For all enquiries, please email or phone 01865 286839.  The Visual Resources Centre is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only during office hours, and closed during vacation periods.  Do be aware that we are unable to accept drop-in visitors - appointments must be made in advance.
