Photographic Collection

The Resource Centre's photographic collection is the premier source for high quality hockey photographs. This collection contains thousands of photographs and negatives from the current season to rare archival images from leading hockey photographers protected under copyright by the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Resource Centre also houses an extensive, easy-to-access collection of individual player and team photographic files.

The Resource Centre uses a computerized collection management system (CMS) to classify, record and database the vast photographic collection. This state-of-the-art computerized system uses IBM client/server technology and a centralized database on the Resource Centre's AS/400 Advanced Series server to hold information on the entire photo collection, cross referenced with keys for accessing cataloged information. The future goal of the CMS is to provide access to the Hockey Hall of Fame's entire collection of artifacts, documents and photographs via the Internet.
