The Visual Media Center in the School of Art & Art History provides digital still images to DU faculty and students for teaching, learning, and research. The Visual Media Center is located in Shwayder Art Building (SAB), in Room 122, and is open from 8AM to 3:30PM, Monday through Friday.
What we do:
- Add new images to CourseMedia via request. Anyone in the DU community can request to have still images added to DU CourseMedia. Visit the VMC in room 122 to find out how to request images, or download the order form from the and bring it and your source (books, magazines, photographs, 33mm slides, etc.) to the VMC. There is usually a two-week turn-around time on requests of 25 images or fewer. Please note that while personal images can be added to CourseMedia they are NOT shareable or searchable therefore students will not have access to them.
- A/V support for SAB 118 & SAB 119. VMC staff provides training and assistance in these rooms during the regular hours of the Visual Media Center (8AM – 3:30PM). The Visual Media Center is not responsible for the three classrooms in Nagel Art Studios but we can provide basic trouble-shooting advice. Otherwise contact Classroom Support at 1-3595.
