lux: Showing off the Photographic Collection on Tumblr

Tuesday 4 September 2012

The Department of Special Collections of the University Library has a new Tumblr blog called “lux”. Its aim is to cater to those who will enjoy receiving a steady stream of images which illustrate the scope of our Photographic Collection and the new discoveries we’re making every week. Out of our vast collection of over 700,000 historic photographs, only 10% are currently available online. “lux” will give followers the opportunity to enjoying a sneak peak at some of the previously unseen and rare photos we have on offer.

Our aim is to share weekly selections which illustrate the breadth of our collection and encourage those interested to learn more. Please share our images and forward our posts with others as the more people that use the collection the better. Don’t forget that you’re welcome to come see the originals! Members of the public, students of all ages and disciplines, or those who are just plain curious are all welcome.
