UMass Dartmouth Publications Office photographs
Scope and Contents
Collection consists of black and white and color photographic prints and slides taken for use by the university's publications department. Many were used for publications, but others were not, especially multiple versions of the same subject. The first series consists of a collection of photographs filed by subject (originally kept in green file boxes). The second series are negatives and slides. Photographs were taken by the library's Photographics Department, and most of the slides were taken by non-UMD photographers unless otherwise noted on the photo. Subjects represent specific events, places and people, but some are merely classed generally, such as "students" or "minorities."
