VRC Services

The VRC provides the following services to faculty and students: 

  • Image digitization
  • Support for digital humanities projects and technology, including virtual reality, GIS, and Scalar
  • 3-D scanning
  • Help with finding images, copyright, and citing
  • Room to study or work on projects

Image Requests

The VRC welcomes image requests from faculty members to aid with teaching or publication. If the image requested is for publication, the VRC is not responsible for obtaining appropriate usage rights for the image and will aid in digitization only.

If you need copywork, please fill out the copywork form below, attach it to the source material, and leave it in the VRC on the drop-off shelf. Forms also available in the office.

We will scan slides from a faculty's personal collection upon request after evaluating slide quality, copyright considerations and whether the image exists for purchase. See the Visual Resources Curator before requesting any slides to be scanned.
