Last year, we announced that photo services had created an online photo gallery where members of the campus community can download free images of the Kansas City campus. Photo services has recently added many more images to the SharePoint gallery, accessible with your KU Medical Center user name and ID. Among the images free for members of the campus community are:
There are also folders for research, the School of Health Professions, the School of Medicine, and the School of Nursing. These images are intended to serve as "stock" photos – general depictions of the kinds of work we do, featuring people who have agreed to allow their photos to be used for this purpose.
"We are eager to add to these image libraries, so if people would like us to add their portraits, or pictures of their research, education, patient care or community engagement work, please contact us," says Elissa Monroe, manager of photo services.
