Slide Giveaway continues!

This Week: American Photographers

Dear MCADians,

Once upon a time, the MCAD Library was home to one of the nation’s outstanding 35mm. Slide Collections. Now, after our transition to the use of digital images as primary teaching resources, we have many thousands of wonderful old glass-mounted slides in good condition that are of no further use to us as teaching resources—but we don't want to just toss them in the trash! So we’re giving them away!
