Visual Resources Center

The Visual Resource Center (VRC) is a student and faculty services center that provides access to a variety of photographic and audiovisual equipment, a portfolio photography studio room, and analog (35mm slides) and digital image collections. VRC staff members are available to assist faculty members and students with images for teaching and classroom presentations, including the purchase of commercial images and videos, as well as assistance scanning images on site. Portfolio photography seminars and basic training on how to take quality digital images of student projects are offered by appointment. VRC staff members also provide professional input on digital imaging issues surrounding copyrights, file type choices, Adobe Photoshop image corrections, and long term digital file storage.


Students and faculty members can check out a variety of equipment for educational use, including: digital cameras, digital video cameras, tripods, digital voice recorders, digital projectors, laser pointers, a mobile TV/DVD/VCR unit, and day-lighting light meters.


The VRC maintains and provides access to a large digital image database for use in course presentations and research. It is accessed through the CU Denver or Auraria campus network.
