What kind of images do I find in TU/e in the Picture?

TU/e in the Picture comprises still and moving images that give an impression of the development of our university from its foundation onwards. The portion dating from before 2003 is an (ever expanding) selection from the analog photographic archives of TU/e. In 2003 the university photography section was closed down and its archives were transferred to what is now Library and Information Services (LIS). The database is regularly updated with photographic images and film footage, both recent material and historic images that are digitized.

Do I find all historic images of TU/e in TU/e in the Picture?

No. The greater part of the analog historic photographic collection has not (yet) been digitized. In this image bank you find the photographs and films that are available in digital form, either digitized or digital born. The number of analog photographs being digitized and added to TU/e in the Picture is however rising steadily. If you are looking for analog images please contact Erik Geelen, academic heritage specialist at LIS.

How may I use images from TU/e in the Picture?

Via the Request button on each screen with full image presentation, you can place requests for images from TU/e in the Picture in the highest available resolution. Each user may request up to 5 images at a time. TU/e staff and students may place requests for images from the TU/e archives free of charge. Users from outside TU/e are charged € 15,- per image. Images from TU/e in the Picture may be used for personal study. If you wish to use images from the TU/e archives to illustrate an article or other type of publication, always mention TU/e as the source. If you find a picture made by a private photographer which you wish to use in a publication, you must always mention his/her name as the source and pay the fee charged by the photographer. LIS can assist you in contacting the photographer.

May I also contribute images to TU/e in the Picture?

If you are in possession of images which you consider historically relevant to our university, we would appreciate if you would want to share them with the TU/e community. Therefore, you may submit images along with any information you have about them to DML. Depending on relevance and quality we will decide if we will add your images to TU/e in the Picture. All applying rules regarding copyright, personality law and portrait right must of course be respected. Please contact the Library helpdesk or Erik Geelen, academic heritage specialist at LIS.

We also appreciate any additional information you can provide to us about images in TU/e in the Picture. Our image collection is large and varied, and much information about subjects, events and persons has been lost in the course of time, or mistaken assumptions may have been made. Any information you can give us which could expand or improve the data we have of our images would therefore be quite helpful. On each screen in the image bank with a full view of an image you can send us your comment using the ‘Respond to this image’ button. You may also contact the Library helpdesk or Erik Geelen, academic heritage specialist at LIS.
