About this series

Scope and Content:
This series consists of photographs created digitally by the campus photographer. The materials in this series are generally promotional in nature and appear to have been created for marketing purposes, providing an "official" view of campus events and activities. Subjects include athletic teams, campus buildings, campus events, portraits of students, faculty and alumni, and university-organized events that took place off-campus.
Material from the UAlbanyPhotos website was maintained in its original arrangement. If items were moved the new arrangement was also maintained, so there is the potential for duplication., Material that was transferred on optical media were matched by job number found in the top level directory. This job number was matched to a database maintained by the University Photographer which included basic descriptions, the ordering department, and timestamps. For Images from 2010-2012, a newer database was used that did not include descriptions. Descriptions for these items came from the directory names that held the images., and The images transferred on optical media were matched by the archivist to the arrangement provided by the UAlbanyPhotos website.
