35mm Slide Collections
The slide collection was organized in the 1940s and now includes approximately 75,000 cataloged slides and 70,000 uncataloged gift slides. Notable gift slides include the collection of Marion Dean Ross, covering world architecture, and Michael Shellenbarger, focusing on historic preservation. Digitization of these unique resources is ongoing, and many are included in the Building Oregon and Art & Architecture Images Collections.
