DATABASE AND MEDIA SERVICES

 

  

  

The Media Resource Service (COSER 511) incorporates the latest technology into its offerings. Our more than 9,000 current, subject-specific multimedia resources (streaming video and audio) enhance the curriculum and support students in the learning process.  They utilize the latest technology allowing remote access 24 X 7 for faculty and students. Professional development workshops and training sessions encourage participants to develop skills for integrating multimedia materials effectively into the teaching/learning process.

Remote databases access services are also available.

Online Information Resources (COSER 513) provides subscribers with access to a variety of comprehensive full-text and/or indexed reference databases that complement the K-12 curriculum. Up-to-date resources improve student research through successful searching strategies. Students are able to select the type of information required to meet their needs in a range of formats (citations, abstracts, full-text documents and page-image documents). Staff development workshops provide hand-on opportunities to incorporate databases into the teaching and learning process.
