Blueprint Negatives of University Buildings

 Collection
Identifier: UBLU

Scope and Contents

Blueprint Negatives of University Buildings consists of eight-by-ten inch transparency copies of original Colorado State University building blueprints. The Facilities Management Department created these copies in the 1990s, and original blueprint dates range from 1881 to 1985. The collection is incomplete in that it does not contain blueprint images for all CSU buildings, Facilities Management may still hold additional blueprints that were not made into transparencies, and no changes after the 1980s are documented in any of the present materials. Most blueprints are for buildings on CSU's main campus, but some satellite facilities are also represented. Also present are blueprints for buildings that have been demolished or sites that CSU no longer owns.

Abstract

In the 1990s, the Facilities Management Department created eight-by-ten inch negatives from the original building blueprints. The department still maintains the original blueprints in their storage facility. The blueprint negatives were transferred to the University Archive in 2006. This collection consists of modern negatives of University building blueprints and tracings. Note that the dates refer to the date of original creation; copies of materials were made in the 1990s.
