Trinity Digital Collections
The Special Collections Department in the Coates Library serves as the Trinity University Archives, and includes approximately 15,000 photographs and 20,000 slides documenting the University's history from the 1870s to the 1990s. The historic images in the collection range in date throughout the University's first 100 years and are divided into 4 subject categories (based on the University's geographic location): the Tehuacana Images (1869-1902), the Waxahachie Images (1902-1942), the Woodlawn: San Antonio Images (1910-1952), and the Skyline Campus: San Antonio Images (mid 1950s-present).
These collections include glass plate images, tintypes, and gelatin photos, as well as traditional and digital photography. The digitization of this and other collections insures the continued preservation and improved access to these resources.
