The Visual Resources Center is a library of teaching and research images, primarily serving the College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley. We hold over 82,000 digital images, over 300,000 35mm slides, and 37,000 lantern slides depicting architecture, landscapes, cities, and related material.

The Visual Resources Center can:

  • Help you find or create digital images to use in the classroom.
  • Assist in creating digital images from your slides or archival material.
  • Create digital versions of 35mm slides and Lantern slides in our collection for teaching use.

Our digital image collection is available to the University of California community via the ARTstor digital image library.
