Ball State University Building Plans Collection Enhanced

The Ball State University Building Plans digital collection is a representative sampling of architectural plans and blueprints for Ball State campus buildings dating back to the construction of the Administration Building in 1899. The plans were digitized from the original drawings held by Facilities Planning and Management.

Recently, metadata from the collection was enhanced to provide better access to subjects and architects as well as further describe the content of the images. Use the Advanced Search feature and show terms in the Subject - LCSH field to get a full list of the buildings and landmarks that are covered, such as Beneficence, seen here.
