Services relocated after photo unit closes

by Anne Krapfl
Although ISU Photo Service closed Nov. 16, many of the services it offered have been transferred to other campus units for use by the university community. Here's a quick summary of what's available.
  • Film, photo supplies and film processing. The University Book Store, Memorial Union, will stock most of the film varieties and photography supplies that Photo Service used to sell. These items are for sale on the store's lower level, near the art supplies. Film processing, actually done by local businesses, will be offered from the bookstore's photo counter. Color print film will continue to have same-day and next-day processing options.
  • Photography on-location and studio 2-D or 3-D. ISU photographer Bob Elbert has been retained by University Relations as the university's photographer. Schedule appointments with Elbert by calling 4-4053. The hourly fee has been reduced.
  • Portrait photography, photo copy work, digital imaging. Photo technician Grant Steinfeldt has been retained by the Instructional Technology Center and will continue to spend part of his time on these services. To schedule appointments with him, call 4-8022 (Steinfeldt ITC).
  • ISU photo archive. The ISU photo archive will be maintained by the Instructional Technology Center; images will continue to be available to the university community. ITC plans to announce, by early January, a reduced user fee schedule for images in the archive. The university's historical archive remains at Parks Library.
