Communications Photo Archives
Communications currently maintains two different photo archives, as staff work through the process of transferring images from one system to the other. Photos are being transferred in reverse chronological order—newer photos are found in the newer system, and older photos still only reside in the older system. Our archives consist of over 288,000 photographs - we appreciate your patience during this transition. Please contact Pat Wright, x5737, with any questions.
Important note: The photo archives contain images from many all-campus events (Commencement,
Reunion, Celebration Weekend,) but may not contain images from student-centered events
(trick or treating, Wafflefest). Please contact Pat Wright if you are looking for
images that you cannot find in either photo archive.
For New Photos (2011-2015)
Use the button to the right to visit the new photo archive application, and use the search boxes and drop down menus to find what you're looking for.
Please note: you will need a VPN connection to access this catalog from off-campus. You can contact IT for support in setting up and using VPN connections.
Instructions for using the updated Skidmore Images Catalog will be provided soon. If you have questions or need assistance, contact Pat Wright, x5737.
For Older Photos (2010 and older)
How to Search | Requesting Photos
Use the button to the right to go to the old archive application, and use the search tips below to help you find what you're looking for.
In this archive catalog you are only provided with a thumbnail version of the image - you must then follow the directions below to request a full-sized version from the physical archives.
To search the catalog use one of two options - keyword search, or browse by category.
Search for photos by keyword or description
- Search the catalog by entering in information from the drop down boxes, or fill in field for year or description (location refers to CD location, which will be less useful in your search.)
- Click on the all button, and then click go.
- people matches – glotzbach, philip
- Year contains – 2011
- Description contains - commencement
You should receive 27+ results.
Browse by category
- At the bottom of the left column, select a keyword from the drop down menu (for example, commencement.)
- You will receive 3,453+ images associated with commencement.
