Research Center, Visual Studies Workshop help

The Research Center at the Visual Studies Workshop maintains archival and research collections about the media arts of photography, independent film and video, electronic imaging, visual books and the publication arts. VSW’s focus on the aesthetics, cultural history of media, and social use of images has developed a collections policy that includes both creative work and vernacular images, as well as items that represent the history of media use. Our Research Library contains over 25,000 books and is open to the public by appointment. See the Visit VSW.org for hours and directions.
