Researchers can access a wealth of Mackinac images through our library photo files. This collection, arranged by topic, includes copies of MSHP collection images as well as copies of images from other depositories and private collections. In addition to a library visit, photo research requests are also available by contacting our office. Photo files and a search of the glass plate negative and historic print collections (see Historic Photographs) will be checked by staff. The researcher will then be notified if a particular image or subject is available.
Photo copying services are available. Use of images in publications, exhibits or other media is governed by a use policy. See the Ordering Photographs section for details and a price list.
All inquiries are coordinated through:
