Media Resources Center
York College's media collection makes available to faculty, staff, and student organizations a wide range of media titles and equipment. Individual students can also borrow both media and equipment for special projects. Faculty recommendations for new materials to support the teaching curriculum and previews for evaluations are invited and encouraged.
The Media Resources Center, housed in AC-4G03, has a media collection of over 3,000 titles of videos and DVD's available for instructional use. In addition, the Media Collection has slides, ¾ video, 16MM films and filmstrips. These can be transferred to video, DVD or PowerPoint presentation with two weeks advance notice. The collection is online and currently in the process of being updated and put in a searchable format. There is also a paper catalog, listed in two volumes, The York College Educational Media Catalog Vol. I: Subject Guide (451 pages), and Vol. II: Alphabetical Guide (1,200 pages).
A list of recently purchased titles can be accessed here. There is also a hard copy of new releases available in 4G03.
Instructors wishing to use films, videos or other instructional media must fill out a "Media Service Requisition" form. Forms can be obtained in AC-4G03 and requisitions must be received by the Media Center at least 48 hours (2 working days) prior to the anticipated date of use. Telephone requests are not accepted. Users are responsible for the pick-up, use and return of all materials.
