FPICs is an acronym for Faculty Personal Image Collections. It is an initiative to help faculty at Colgate digitize and/or organize personal research and teaching images and make them available online via MDID3. An added advantage is that storage and backup for these collections is built in to MDID3. These images will be available only to the owner of the collection, unless he or she grants permission for access to others.

Examples of current FPICs projects include fieldwork and travel images, personal copystand slides used for teaching, research images from museums, and studio artists' own work.

If you are a Colgate faculty member (current OR retired) interested in beginning your own slide digitization project through the VR library, contact the VR Curator for more information.
