The Prints and Photographs Department can be located within the Manuscript Division of the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center. It holds more than 200,000 graphic images, including photographs, slides, postcards, broadsides, prints, negatives, and maps. These items date from the mid-1600s to the present and feature many unique items such as illustrated newspapers, drawings, sketches, daguerreotypes, tintypes, stereograph cards, and glass plate negatives.

All permission to publish inquiries for photographs housed within the Manuscript Division are processed through the Prints and Photographs Department. To request information and to learn more about the collections please visit us at the MSRC Webpage. To view our collections digitally, please visit the Prints and Photographs Digital Collections. Any photograph collections that are present on Digital Howard will not be pulled for appointments as they are readily available for viewing on our website.
