Support for Teaching with Digital Images

Visual Resources staff offer training and advice to faculty and students on all aspects of sourcing and using digital images for classroom use. Individual or group sessions can be arranged for training in the use of our Online Image Databases as well as presentation tools such as Powerpoint and Keynote.

The Center also offers a digital imaging service, which allows faculty to order digital images that are not available from RISD’s online databases. Faculty can submit orders of no more than 100 images to the VMRC Librarian. The images will be processed in one week, and delivered to the faculty member in whichever format was requested.
