FPICs is an acronym for Faculty Personal Image Collections. It is an initiative to digitize personal slide collections belonging to faculty at Colgate and make them available online via MDID. 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.
