Visual Resources Center

Visual Resources Center

The VRC operates on an appointment-only basis. To use the scanners, access Adobe Creative Cloud, or consult with the curator about your image needs, please make an appointment. Find a separate booking page for printing on the Risograph under Services & Support.

The Visual Resources Center (VRC) supports art faculty and students by providing expert image research support and specialized visual arts resources. We're also responsible for acquiring, cataloging, and maintaining the Reed Digital Collections (RDC) for the Art Department, ensuring that our diverse image repository enhances teaching, research, scholarship, and visual literacy across the Reed community.
