The rich visual heritage of northeastern California is documented in the over 30,000 images held in the Special Collections photograph collection, many dating from the nineteenth century and representing a wide variety of early photographic processes. This extensive collection is a result of gifts and loans from individuals, historical organizations, as well as public and private agencies.
Digitization of the collection began in 1998 and is ongoing through today. Image scans are generally made as high-resolution tiffs and are displayed as JPEG2000 files.
