Extent397 items
AbstractThe collection comprises photographs collected by the Registrar's Department and other administrative and professional service sections of the University.
Access ConditionsAccessible to all readers.
Admin HistoryThe photographs in this group have been collected together and transferred to Manuscripts and Special Collections by central administrative departments at the University, most notably, but not exclusively, the Registrar’s Department. Initially the University administration was divided between the Registrar’s Department which managed academic and administrative issues and the Bursar’s department which dealt with financial and estate matters. University administration has evolved over time, but the Registrar’s Department still provides a range of professional services to the University. Photographs relating to University Libraries which now forms part of professional services within the Registrar's Department can be found at UMP/6.
Custodial HistoryThe photographs were transferred from the Registrar's Department and other non-academic departments to the Department of Manuscripts at various times from 1969. Further photographs which are acquired from the University's central administrative and some of the professional service departments will be added to this group.
DescriptionThese photographs relate mainly to the University Park Campus but there are also a small number of photographs relating to the Sutton Bonington Campus. There are interior and exterior views of various buildings, together with architect’s models of buildings and landscape design. There are also general views of the campus and some aerial photographs. Also featured are images of students at work and at leisure and photographs of University staff. A small group of photographs show early Principals of University College, Nottingham. The photographs cover a range of dates but particularly reflect the University from the late 1940s to the 1960s, a period of significant change and development for the University.
