Collections Policy

Scholars and the general public are increasingly aware of the importance of the visual in examining the past.  The consequent growing interest in visual materials affects our collecting decisions for both books and graphics. The overarching guidelines in place for the development of our book and graphics collections apply to the Visual Culture Program, with certain added emphases outlined here.
