Site Information

The photographs in this collection originate from several different sources:

    University Archives
    University Communications
    Teaching and Learning Technologies


The photographs from the University Archives were selected by the university archivist from thousands of images related to the University of Nevada, Reno campus in the archives. The images were scanned at 24-bit color on an Epson Expression 1680 scanner at 400 dpi to create high resolution, uncompressed TIFF images. Copyright restrictions may apply.

The born-digital images contributed to this collection by the campus photographers and the University Communications photographer were taken with several different cameras.  Each is described in the "Digitization Specifications" field of metadata in each record in the collection.  Only non-commercial University related uses are allowed; all other uses by permission. All rights reserved.

In the near future, born-digital campus images generated by the ASUN will also be added by the university archivist.

All of these images are loaded into the CONTENTdm digital assets management software and assigned metadata.  The metadata librarian for this project created both the data dictionary and the campus maps searches.
