Description of the collection

A contact sheet is a preview of the photos taken by the offical photographers of Boise State University. Each contact sheet consists of rows of positive film strips. Many contact sheets include multiple subjects, locations, and selections. These three metadata fields are combined into three records, seperated by semicolins.

Each contact sheet is labeled with a Photo Identification Number. This number has three parts: [Year][Month]-[page number], for example: 7504-003 indicates the date April, 1975 and page 3. If the orignial photos were taken using a large format negative, the contact sheet will have the prefix: Oversize.
