How to look for photographs at the Thousand Oaks Library website

The best place to start is in our Virtual Library, under Special Collections.  We have a page devoted to the photograph collections:

https://www.tolibrary.org/research/special-collections-home/local-history-collection/photo-collections

This page has links to the materials that are currently online, and descriptions of the major photo collections at the Thousand Oaks Library.

Now, you can also search for photos directly from the library main page, just type in a name or place or subject, and when the results come back, click on the “Images” tab. 

If you are not finding what you hoped to see, you can contact us through Ask-a-Librarian, to have a staff member do an in-depth search.

To see if there were local news articles about the subject, you can also search our Local News Index, http://search.tolibrary.org:81/search/w
