Digitization: U. of Arizona Libraries' Special Collections Completes Work on a New Digital Collection and Now Available Online
The Jack Sheaffer Photograph Digital Collection, which spans three decades of southern Arizona’s history, is now available online via the UA’s Special Collections.
Jack Sheaffer’s 1950-1970s-era images illustrate Tucson and southern Arizona’s history during a time of explosive growth.
The University of Arizona’s Special Collections, which regularly digitizes selections from its holdings to increase access to unique and rare material via the Web, has recently completed the Jack Sheaffer Photograph Digital Collection.
The collection of more than 10,000 images now available online, is an important addition to the University’s digital archive, said Erika Castano, an assistant librarian for UA Libraries.
Each image is available for viewing upon request, and as visitors solicit reproductions, each newly digitalized photo is added to the digital collection. Rights and reproduction information, as well as an application for permission to publish, is available online.
