UBC Archives Photograph Collection

Over 40,000 photographic images held by the University of British Columbia Archives dating from the founding of the University to the present day. They present a visual record of UBC's growth and development, the evolution of student life, and campus events over most of the past century.

The University of British Columbia University Archives has digitized its photographic holdings in order to make the images available to researchers on the World Wide Web. The images date from the founding of the University to the present day, and present a visual record of UBC's growth and development, student life, and campus events over most of the past century.

Users can add tags and comments to the descriptive information (metadata) for each image. User-defined tags can help make images more accessible. Comments are a means by which users can correct or add to information -- for example, noting persons or events depicted in images that are not identified in the descriptions.
