The Educational Communications department at OHSU (known as EdCOMM), provides production services such as photography, audio/video, graphic design, and multimedia support for classrooms. The collection contains strictly photographic materials from the mid 1980's through the late 1990's. The collection consists of 170 folders of photographs, contact sheets and negatives. The folders are arranged (in original order) alphabetically by the department or subject documented at OHSU. The photographs, contact sheets and negatives are primarily in good condition, ranging in various sizes from 5 x 7 to 9.5 x 12 inches. The images were taken by staff photographers at EdCOMM likely for promotional purposes.
