The Center for Southwest Research, University Libraries, University of New Mexico is the repository for two important collections documenting U.S. cultural landscapes. The John Brinkerhoff Jackson Papers and Pictorial Collection highlight the work of the internationally celebrated scholar and landscape historian. The Chester H. Liebs Papers and Pictorial Collections highlight the work of an early leader and educator in the U.S historic preservation movement. Together these two collections form the core of  an effort on the part of the CSWR to collect materials documenting the vernacular landscape, particularly through photography.
