Describes different collections available at ECU Library

Slide Collection

There are over 10,000 slides in the collection. The primary focus of the slide collection is 20th and 21st century art, design and media. They are in filing cabinets on the 1st floor of the library. This collection is a resource of images for research, classroom use and art projects. The Library also subscribes to several digital image collections in our Databases.

How to Search for Slides

Search the library's online catalogue to identify slides on a particular artist.

Each slide has been assigned a subject heading based on the artist. For example: Orozco, Gabriel, 1962- -- Slides

The full record for Gabriel Orozco indicates that there are two subject areas that house Orozco slides as follows:

  • West 20c print Mexico
  • West 20c sculpture Mexico

The subject areas listed in the full record correspond to labels on the slide cabinets located on the lower level of the library. Within each cabinet the slides are arranged alphabetically by artist.       604-844-3840        520 East 1st Avenue, Vancouver, BC
