Audio-Visual Collection (Iowa City Center)

The photograph collections contain images reflecting the history of the state of Iowa, and the experiences of other Midwesterners. Photographic materials are arranged by standard subject headings, with cross-indexing to geographic location. Also available:

  • alphabetically arranged portrait files
  • collections of postcards, stereographs, and photo albums
  • Iowa Stereo Photographers Directory
  • General Subject Listing
  • SHSI Photo Sampler on Flickr - a webpage has been created on the Flickr internet photo-sharing site to showcase some representative portions of the holdings that are preserved and made available for research at our Des Moines and Iowa City locations, and to make select images accessible for "virtual" reference.
