The Pictorial Collection Database

The Pictorial Collection database contains over 350,000 images – representing about 50% of the total number of items held in the photographic collection.

Images are added to the database on a regular basis as collections are digitised. Images that are subject to access restrictions (e.g. secret/sacred content) are not included in the Pictorial Collection database. The Pictorial Collection database is available for use in the AIATSIS Reading Room but may also be accessed by remote users upon request
