Visual Resources Center

The Visual Resources Center (VRC), located in Anderson 136, is the Art and Art History Department's repository of digital images that are used in classroom instruction. Sets of digital images represent all courses taught in Art History and Studio Art.

The Visual Resources Center also holds a large collection of analog images that are maintained for use as reference material. The inventory of analog slides include the private image collections of Hartwick College art and art history faculty.

The Visual Resources Center is accessible to Hartwick College students and faculty. Textbooks, graduate studies programs, art reviews and professional artist information may be found here. There are also several years of senior theses from 1991 to the present. Educational films held by the department can be viewed on an individual basis within the Center (arrangments must be made in advance). Images may be scanned for temporary use by students for classroom presentations and educational papers. All images are copyright protected and must follow the guidelines of copyright law section 107, "fair use." Faculty and students may request use of an analog or digital image from the collection. Assistance in the scanning or the location of an image may be arranged by contacting the Visual Resources Center Curator, Nancy Golden, or dial ext. 4575.

The Visual Resources Center offers Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and a large work table. The Visual Resources Center is open September - December and February - May, Monday - Thursday, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Other times by appointment.
