About Us

We  support, through images and instruction, the teaching and research needs of the MassArt community.

  • We fill faculty requests to digitize images from books, slides, or film.
  • We invest in digital image sets from vendors such as Davis Art Images and Universal Images.
  • We offer one-on-one instruction on how to use and present digital images.

Our image resources:
