The Visual Resource Center supports the educational mission of the Department of Art at California State University, San Bernardino. The VRC accomplishes this supportive role in several ways through—
- Collecting and providing access to images, books, and videos,
- Providing lab workspace with graphics software,
- Offering instruction on topics of information literacy and professional skills,
- Providing reference services on the topics of image searching and art history.
The Visual Resource Center has a strong commitment to meeting the needs of the Department of Art through the use of community resource center strategies. As the needs of the community it serves change, the Visual Resource Center is dedicated to changing its policies and guidelines to accommodate shifting needs.
