    This collection has been superseded by a combination of the Archivision Architectural Images Collection & the Saskia Art Images Collection, which together made up over 90% of the earlier collection. The additional items currently are part of the Art and Cultural Heritage Collection and soon will be part of the still-to-be-created Art History Department Visual Resources Collection.This was done in part to facilitate access to the images from the Libraries' soon-to-come new search tool and in part to address some technical issues that interfered with the ability to provide timely updates to the collections.
