The Property and Campus Services Photographic Collection comprises of slides, separate photographs, albums and binders of photographic materials and documents the built environment of the University of Melbourne. The Collection is a valuable historical and contemporary resource for those who wish to research and understand the physical development of the University. The Collection documents the substantial changes to the University in the post-World War II period, a time that witnessed an intense building and landscaping program. Evidence is recorded in detail of changing architectural styles and construction methods that were considered innovative at the time, and how these buildings have been subsequently altered and updated to suit changing needs. The Collection provides substantial photographic documentation of a number of University buildings that are now considered of State and National heritage significance. The collection comprises more than 20,000 images.
