Visual Resources collection moves into Daley Library

The Visual Resources library, a collection of images developed and maintained by the College of Architecture and the Arts (A&A) for instruction, has moved into room 1-461 of the Daley Library as of July 2009.

Jane Darcovich, Visual Resources Librarian, continues to report to the Dean of A&A. To give her a home in the Library, Jane will be part of the Information Technology Division and consult with Bob Sandusky.

Jane and a staff of graduate assistants identify or scan images for use in classes and maintain a collection of slides and an online database of images. The Visual Resources library supplements other image collections available to the UIC community such as ARTstor, the Saskia Art Images Collection, and UIC’s digital holdings in CARLI Digital Collections.

The normal hours of the Visual Resources library are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.; patrons should phone ahead before coming to use the materials. Any UIC-affiliated patron is welcomed to use the collection during staffed hours. Also, some A&A faculty members have access to the collection when the Library is open evenings and week ends via the i-card reader on the door to room 1-461. A&A authorizes after-hours access to this collection – all requests should be directed to Jane.

Jane can be reached at 312-413-2464 or darcovic@uic.edu
