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).

Numbered contact sheets, negatives and prints

Sub-series consists of photographic negatives, contact sheets and prints created by staff photographers of LIDC and its predecessors. Contact sheets are pages of thumbnail images developed from the negatives. Contact sheets were organized by the creators by year, assigning a unique year-based serial number to each sheet (e.g. IMC 72062 = contact sheet 62 from 1972 created by the Instructional Media Centre). It is the contact sheets (rather than individual images) that were indexed (see note below on Finding aids).

For a few years (1987-1989), prints were developed from the negatives and filed by the same contact-sheet number system. Not all contact sheet negatives in these years were developed into prints; and the number of the prints post-1989 is very small. In the file-level contact sheet descriptions, the Physical storage section indicates the availability and container number of the contact sheet and any associated negatives and prints. In a small number of cases, contact sheets or negative may be missing, meaning they were not transferred to the Archives.

For photo subjects, see the parent series description for F-18-1, Photographic materials.

Note that the 1963 negatives pre-date the construction of the university and were later incorporated by IMC into its photo system. There are no contact sheets for the 1963 images.

Animation film

Animated black and white film, silent. The print contains no credits. The leader of the film states "Al Sens – CBC promo April 1965." Sens was an independent animator before working at SFU, and founded his own studio, Al Sens Animation, in Vancouver in 1958. According to a 6 October 1966 media release, Al Sens was working for SFU's Audio Visual Centre. This film may have been produced for CBC prior to Sens' employment at SFU.
