2. Photo Files
Photo Files, like Vertical Files, are quick and easy way to get to images related to College events.
Photo files are a conglomeration of photographs taken by professionals and amateurs of the College and the surrounding area. Photo files are arranged by subject (Winter Carnival Queens, Freshman Picture Fights, etc.). There is a local database of these files that can be accessed from computers in Rauner’s reading room or you can ask a librarian for assistance. The Library is in the process of digitizing the Photo Files, a subset is available and we are adding to these on regular basis.
