Call for Contributions: Updating Visual Materials Bibliography

The Visual Materials Section steering committee has formed a working group to update our resources and bibliography for visual materials. If this project interests you, consider joining the working group by contacting Angela Schwartz at

The 38-page bibliography started in the 1980s by Richard Pearce-Moses and later donated to VMS has been updated periodically over last thirty years. This current revision will include:

· Member submitted resources. If you have a favorite resource that helps you with your visual materials work, please submit it via this form.

· Links to digital copies of available resources.

· Expansion of visual material types. The bibliography currently includes photographs, moving images, selected print technologies, visual ephemera, and architectural records. We will be adding resources for cartographic materials and born-digital. If there are additional formats you’d like to see represented, let us know!
