Archival Image provides research and procurement services for content developers seeking an array of visual resources. With a keen understanding of archival principles and practice, we specialize in eking out unique content from public and privately held archives, and negotiate licenses with rights holders.

We work collaboratively with clients to establish budgets and production timelines, conduct rights research, and coordinate asset delivery.


Archival Image provides services to entities charged with the administration of archival collections. Services include archival arrangement and description, selection and metadata, digitization, preservation housing, collection management, and more.

We work closely with clients to anticipate the demands of various stakeholders - be they grant funders, researchers, or family - to ensure that our work meets the diverse goals of every project.


Fundamentally committed to the preservation of the “stuff of history,” Archival Image works with creators, collectors, and heirs on projects related to legacy planning, asset monetization, collection donation, or sale.

Depending on each client's unique situation, we will develop content appraisals or inventories, evaluate need for conservation, assess value, and assist in the permanent placement of the collection in a museum, library or archival repository.
