Scope and Contents

This section of the Photograph Collection record group consists of negatives that do not have corresponding positive prints. These are available in their physical form in the archives. They are stored in envelopes for preservation purposes and are numbered like the rest of the Photograph Collection. This section also contains digitized files of nitrate negatives, which correspond to the physical Photograph Collection (record series 23). The physical nitrates were digitized and then discarded, due to preservation concerns and the format's inherent instability. These are only accessible in the SCandUA reading room.

Researchers are advised that the disclosure of certain information pertaining to identifiable living individuals represented in this collection without the consent of those individuals may have legal ramifications (e.g., a cause of action under common law for invasion of privacy may arise if facts concerning an individual's private life are published that would be deemed highly offensive to a reasonable person) for which the University of Northern Iowa assumes no responsibility.
