Learning and Instructional Development Centre fonds

  • F-18
  • Fonds
  • 1963-2014

Fonds consists of predominantly of media works (photographs, moving images, sound recordings, graphic materials) created by LIDC and its predecessors. Records were created in the course of the department's work to provide media and technical support for university teaching and research; support instruction in the development of innovative teaching methods; produce publications to communicate and promote SFU and its programs; and create an audio-visual record of campus events and activities. Records include photographs in various formats (negatives, contact sheets, prints, slides), graphic design materials (drawings and cartoons), sound recordings and moving images; textual records comprise print publications created for client departments.

The fonds has been arranged into five series based on media type and subject:

Learning and Instructional Development Centre

Photographic material

Series consists of photographs created by the staff photographers of LIDC and its predecessors. Negatives and contact sheets were systematically maintained, organized by year-based serial numbers (see sub-series 4 for description of the system). Two groups of subject-based files were also maintained, organized alphabetically: a set of slides (sub-series 2) and a set of unnumbered prints and negatives (sub-series 5. Subjects include SFU's architectural competition and design, interior and exterior architecture; opening ceremonies, presidential installations, Convocation and other special events; faculty portraits and images of students, faculty and staff in classroom and campus settings. Photographers whose works are represented in the series include Chris Hildred, Ron Long, Eddy Chan, Greg Ehlers, and Fred Kyba. Record types include negatives, contact sheets, slides and prints.

The series is arranged into three sub-series; note that there is no sub-series 1 or 3 (retired; see note on Arrangement).

  • Slides, 1967-2003 (F-18-1-2).
  • Numbered contact sheets, negatives and prints, 1963-2001 (F-18-1-4).
  • Unnumbered prints and negatives, 1967-1999 (F-18-1-5).


Sub-series consists of slides created by LIDC photographers, maintained in alphabetically organized files based on subject. The exact relationship between the slides and the negatives and contact sheets in sub-series 4 is not clear; slides may have been created from the original negatives, but (with very few exceptions) there is no cross-reference on the slide back to a negative. For the general range of subjects, see parent series description (F-18-1).
