The Visual Resources Collection (VRC) is a teaching collection of art and architecture images in both analog 35mm slide and digital formats. Currently there are over 24,000 digital images from our collection available to use in your courses here at Ithaca College. During its time as the art history 35 mm slide collection, the VRC had approximately 160,000 slides in its holdings. As of 2006, slides were no longer acquired. We are currently in the process of de-accessioning the collection and plan to keep a core collection of slides for research purposes.

The Art History Department and the VRC completed a major renovation project in the fall of 2010. The VRC is located in G-122 in Gannett Center (first floor of library building) - you can see the office as soon as you walk in the front doors.

The VRC is open to both students and faculty and available to help create professional, high-quality classroom presentations.

We are excited about our new initiative - hosting our digital image collection on ARTstor. See the VRC Resources section (at left) for more details.
