Visual Resources Center

The Visual Resources Center, VRC, provides a variety of instructional support for the Art Department faculty at Appalachian State University. Faculty members have access to ArtStor through the subscription provided by Belk Library. The Art department also maintains a database of images stored locally using MDID. This collection contains over 10,000 images and continues to grow. New images are continuously being added in support of the specific needs of the department as well as faculty requests.

The VRC maintains a collection of art-related DVDs and videos on a variety of topics, for instructional use. Projectors are also available for use in classrooms that do not already have the necessary equipment. These items are only available for checkout by ASU Art Department faculty and staff.

Any questions or requests may be directed to the Visual Resources Manager, Alissa Nelson, at
