Online Digital Media Library
During the building process of M. Miller Gorrie Center over two thousand photographs
were taken to document the major construction activities. An online library for
these photos has been created using a digital collection management software named
CONTENTdm. In this library, all construction images of Gorrie Center are cataloged
and searchable by materials, labor trade, equipment, and tools. Other media, including
construction drawings, specifications, videos, and 3-dimensional models of Gorrie Center
are also collected. Although developed for construction education,
this media collection can help anyone visualize a real world construction project
in all of its aspects. Click the links below to view the collection.
