Rochester Images – Search Tips


The Rochester Images collection is searched via the CatalogPlus, the same way books and other library material are searched. Here are some suggestions to help with searching and viewing the image collections:

  • Keep your searches simple. Use general keyword searches to browse the largest set of images.
  • Use the filters on the left-hand side of the search results screen to browse smaller subsets of the collection. For example, click “Series” to view images by municipality, “Subject” to narrow by specific areas of interest, or “Genre” to limit to a particular type of image.
  • Combine filter limiting to narrow your view even further!
