Abstract

The University Historic Film Collection, 1919-2013 (bulk 1980-2000), contains more than 4,600 videotapes and films created by Colorado State University staff. Most items were produced by the Office of Instructional Services, also known as Instructional Media, and recorded on 8 or 16 mm film, ¾” pneumatic tape, VHS, or Betamax. The content ranges from recorded lectures by CSU faculty, to promotional pieces about the university, to footage of sports events. The films and tapes are supplemented by 21 boxes of project files organized by alphanumeric codes that are keyed to individual films or tapes.

This collection includes films that have been digitized. This consists of 12 videos dated 1979 to 1988, a videotape number conversion catalog ("The Blue Book") from the 1980s which gives a title for each alphanumeric code, and 29 project files dated 1977 to 1997. The videos are final copies edited for broadcast/screening; leaders and color bars were not removed. The project files include production logs, releases, receipts for music rights, and notes.
