Site Information

The 3,300+ photographs in this collection were selected from thousands of images in the photograph archive of the Basque Studies Library. The photographic archive contains approximately 3,000 images that focus primarily on Nevada and the Great Basin Region.

The majority of the images in this digital collection are slides from the archives of photographer Richard Lane and as such were were scanned at 24-bit color at 4000 on a Nikon Super COOLSCAN 5000 ED to create high resolution, uncompressed TIFF images. Some of the images in this digital collection are only available as 72 dpi JPEG images and yet others were taken by an iPhone.  The platform used for web access is CONTENTdm digital content management software.

The team that produced the project was:

Shannon Sisco, Library Technician
Glee Willis, Digital Projects Librarian (retired)
