The MCRD Museum Reference Center has a small percentage of photographs in the MCRD Museum's Photograph Collection are digitized. Digitized photos are organized into the topics listed below. They are not currently online.
If you live in the San Diego area, we strongly recommend that you visit the MCRD Museum Reference Center in person to view the digitized collections and select the images you want. The reason for this is because some collections have several hundred images. It is to your benefit to look at the images yourself so you can select exactly the photo or photos you want. Otherwise, the Museum Historian will have to guess at which image or images she thinks you would like. You must provide your own storage media such as a disc or flash drive to copy images onto. Appointments to visit the MCRD Museum Reference Center are strongly recommended to save you time.
OUT OF AREA PATRONS
If you live outside the San Diego area or are unable to visit the MCRD Museum Reference Center in person, contact the Museum Historian to request that a digitized photograph be transferred to you, free of cost, via an online file transfer service. Please make your digitized photo requests as specific as possible. This helps you get the best photo to fit your request.
