The Photocopy Subject Reference Files provide access to prints, negatives, and other photographic materials from processed collections within the Photographic Archives. Many of the images included in the Subject Files are not represented on digital collections, allowing researchers a more robust way to search the Photo Archives. The University Archives and Records Center began collecting reference materials in its earliest days, in the 1970s, but many individual items are of earlier origin. The files are arranged in alphabetical order by subject.
The files are available onsite in the Archives and Special Collections department. For information on visiting the Archives, see our Archives User's Guide page. The Archives can be reached by telephone at (502) 852-6752, or by email.
