A large collection of Central and East Asian photographs is also found here. Each specific collection is assigned a number: Y304A for the Christy Collection of Photographs, Y0342 for Sudan; the entire RCS collection is arranged by collection number rather than in alphabetical order by country. The quality of the photographs varies greatly as do the accompanying captions; some photographs have printed captions, others are handwritten, and many have no caption attached at all. Each collection begins with a brief typed description, but in many cases this description is illegible.

An extensive catalog (10 sheets of fiche) is found at the end of the entire collection. The catalog is arranged by collection number, and most of these are for specific countires. Each photograph has a plate number and in most cases a thorough description of the photograph is given. In some cases, biographical information about the photographer also appears. To use this collection, it is best to request all of it in order to browse and to flip back and forth between the catalog and individual collections.
