Collection Number



The San Jose State University Architectural Drawings Collection documents the construction of several buildings on the San Jose State College campus, including: San Jose College Central Library Building, Wahlquist Library, and the California State Library Faculty Office Building. In addition to library buildings, a plan for the San Jose State College Dormitories, and the plat plan, a master plan, for the San Jose State Normal School are represented. The drawings represent the various stages of building design development, ranging from schematic design and visualization (renderings and orthographic representations), to full sets of construction drawings (blueprints). The format is the typical architectural page spread layout and range in size from 22x36 to larger formats.
