Finding Digitized Photos
You can find digitized photographs and other visual materials in the library's Online Archive. By using the filters on the left-hand side under "Narrow your search" you can limit your results to specific formats of materials.
This is just a selection of materials from the archives. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don't find what you are looking for online, there may be items in the archives that we haven't digitized yet.
You can limit your search to "Still Image" to search images (versus text or audiovisual). However, there are additional images that may be included in "Text"-classified documents, such as the El Rodeo yearbooks. It's always easier to start with a broad search and then narrow down your results as needed.
Student Yearbooks:https://digital.lib.calpoly.edu/rekl-uaybk These show up as "text" files, but there are many photos located in the yearbooks. They are especially strong in student club photos, department photos, and senior portraits.
How to filter and limit results:
Some audiovisual materials are digitized in the archives as well. This includes oral histories, VHS tapes, speeches, KCPR student radio, and Music Department LPs.
You can limit or filter your search by selecting "Audio" or "moving image" under the filters on the lefthand sidebar.
