Photography collection materials may be viewed in the Harry Ransom Center's Reading and Viewing Rooms. Some photography collection materials may be restricted due to size, condition, or storage location.

The Photography Collection requires oversize materials be requested three days in advance for viewing on Saturdays. Materials designated as light sensitive or fragile are not available on Saturdays. Camera equipment is not accessible on Saturdays.

Researchers from out-of-town are advised to contact the department's curatorial staff ahead of time, as the staff can provide additional information on collections, finding aids, services, and accessibility.

To search for photographic prints and albums in the collection, please use the photography database. To search for photography books at the Ransom Center, use the UT Library Catalog. Use the Advanced Search page and limit the results to the Harry Ransom Center
