Digital Collections Search Help: Downloading and Requesting Images

Downloading and Requesting Images

This portion will both demonstrate how to download the files off of our Digital Collections Site, and how to request a higher resolution version. Please click between the tabs below to find details about each option.

Be aware that when requesting high-resolution images, fees may apply.

Step 1: Find an image you'd like to download within your search results and click on the item to view its details. 

Step 2: When the item and details on the page load, right click directly on the image and select the option "save image as".

Step 3: Select where you wish to save the image.  The image will automatically default to jpeg file format. 

Note: If you wish to access this image in another format or at a higher resolution, you will either have to convert the image or request a higher resolution version.

Step 1: Find an image you'd like to request within your search results and click on the item to view its details. 

Step 2: Once the item loads, scroll down to the section titled "item description" and find the fields titled "identifier" and "contact information".

Step 3: Use this information to send an email to Archival Services.  Include the email address listed in our contact information, archives@uakron.edu, and the image identifier.  This will allow us to appropriately identify which image you are requesting.  

Note: Be aware that when requesting high-resolution images, fees may apply.  Pricing is determined by resolution and use situation. 

Note: Take notice below of the copyright statement located in all of the item descriptions on our Digital Collections Site.  When downloading or requesting an image for the use of publications, exhibitions, or productions, please contact Archival Services at archives@uakron.edu for written permission to do so.
