Digital Collections

Return to top

The University at Albany Libraries' Digital Collections Database currently provides online access to over 9,000 images with more entries added on an ongoing basis. The majority of these images document the University at Albany's Uptown Campus in the 1970s and 1980s as well as students from the classes of 1847 through 1950. Over 4,000 images from the records of United University Professions are being added on an ongoing basis. Over 800 images from the records of the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) have also recently been made available online. Users may wish to consult the subject terms list from the Search page before beginning a search.

The Department has created an account at Flickr for sharing images from recent Grenander Department and University Libraries events and programs. All images from the Department's collections that are available in digital form will continue to be available only in the University at Albany Libraries' Digital Collections database, so if you are looking for images from your commencement in 1968 use the Digital Collections database not the Flickr page.

Intellectuals in Exile: (M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives October-University Library December 2006, January-May 2007) The exhibit coincided with the program "University in Exile: Refugee Scholars, the New School for Social Research, and the German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collection" sponsored by the University Libraries, Center for Jewish Studies, and the College of Arts and Sciences on Thursday, October 12, 2006, in the Standish Room of the Science Library. The exhibit includes items drawn from the collections of several individuals in the German and Jewish Intellectual Emigre Collections including Karl O. Paetel, Benedikt Dolbin, Roy C. Bates (Kurt Bauchwitz), Walter Maria Kotschnig, and others.

The Sciences at the University at Albany, 1845-2006: (May-December 2006) The exhibit contains items drawn from the University Archives and is on exhibit in the Atrium of the Science Library beginning in May 2006. A small number of items and information from the exhibit are made available here as an introduction to the physical exhibit. The exhibit examines the growth of and changes in science education and research at the University at Albany over its long history through publications, photographs, class notes, memorabilia, and other records documenting University students, faculty, departments, and research centers.

The Secret Lives of Toys and Their Friends: (August-October 6, 2006; January 2007- , M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives) This exhibit contains items drawn from The Miriam Snow Mathes Historical Children’s Literature Collection and is on exhibit in the lobby of the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives (Third Floor of the Science Library). This exhibit features a small sampling of the many stories written for children from either a toy’s point of view or about adventures based on the lives of living toys or objects. The over fifty items in the physical exhibit, including the small number displayed in this exhibit, are a fraction of what the Mathes Collection contains on the subject of animated objects and/or toys.
