The teaching of both Art History & Visual Studies and Archaeology in Manchester is supported by a specialist collection of 350,000 slides. With a focus on the department's traditional strengths, the digitisation of a number of these slides will enable a deeper study of visual resources in an increasingly digitally orientated discipline.

The School of Arts, Histories and Cultures Digital Repository contains a growing number of high resolution images from different areas within the Art History and Archaeology disciplines.

The collections include images of Late Antique/Early Islamic Syria, The Hilton of Cadbol, The Domuztepe project and All Saints' Church, North Street, York. The aim is to expand this database to include many more slides and new, 'born digital' images, each accompanied by catalogue descriptions, to form a fully searchable online catalogue.
