Graduate students work in the Visual Media Center

Visual Media Center

The Visual Media Center (VMC) provides digital imaging services to students for learning, research and teaching purposes. Digital images produced or purchased by the VMC are found in the Jstor Digital Library, a database available through the University Libraries to all DU community members. Our visual resources collection contains over 160,000 images across three collections which include the School of Art & Art History Teaching Collection, the University Libraries Archivision Collection, and a selection of objects from the University Art Collections. High-resolution images are accompanied by high-quality metadata created by VMC staff that faculty and students can use for research, studying and citations, unlike results from Google or other search engines. The collection reflects the cultural and art historical diversity and inclusivity of the curriculum of the School of Art & Art History, and contains historical, geographic and didactic materials that will be useful to many disciplines and departments at DU.

Anyone in the DU community can request to have still images added to the visual resources collection for educational purposes. If you have questions about requesting images or the VMC, contact the Interim Director, Meagan Callahan. The VMC is in room 122 in Shwayder Art Building.
