Frequently Asked Questions

Can I obtain a lists of all the images in the MESL collection?
Yes. Lists of the contents of the image collections and sample images are available from the individual museum information pages accessible from the UVA MESL home page. You can also browse all the images in a particular collection by selecting the collection in the search tool and leaving the search term blank. This will return results of all the images in the collection and you can browse by thumbnails, thumbnails with brief record, or brief record only.

Why can't I see any images?
Due to the MESL licensing agreement, MESL Images are only available and visible to UVA users. That means MESL images are not visible to people connecting to this Web site from outside of UVA.
