Special Collections Department
The Special Collections Department maintains over 1,000,000 photographs. The majority of the images are about Iowa State University and focus on the activities of faculty, staff, students, and alumni. They cover the topics of agriculture, science, technology, home economics, and campus events. Other images are in the Department's manuscript collections and feature subjects such as agriculture, rural life, science, technology, home economics, and local history.
The Department recently received the University Digital Image Archives. To request an image, please contact the University Archives at 515-294-4216 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Department will do its best to respond to requests within 1-2 weeks. The cost for on campus requests is $5.00 per image.
