Instructional Media Services:
Media Services provides the faculty and students of Medgar Evers College and the surrounding community with audiovisual services to support classroom instruction and community activities. There is a media software collection of over 20,000 items that include films, video cassettes, audio cassettes, LPs, CDs, and mixed media sets. Some of these materials can be previewed on the premises while other items can be borrowed for home use. Transparencies and other audiovisual materials can also be produced. The Department also handles equipment such as the VTEK system, which can enlarge print up to 60 times the original size, and Reading Edge Kurzweil Reader for visually impaired patrons, as well as software for speech synthesis, Braille printing, and computer-text enhancement.
In addition, through the Consortium for Educational Communications and Technology (CECT-CUNY), Media Services has access to over 5,000 additional educational films and videos available in other CUNY units.
Reservations for use of equipment and/or audiovisual materials should be made at least two work days before show date. Last minute requests will be accommodated as staffing and equipment permit. The important thing to remember is that a wealth of non print materials is available through MEC Media Services. Holdings are listed in the CUNY+ online catalog in the reading room on the main level as well as in the Media Services area.
