Film Collection 
The SRJC Art and Art History Department's Film Library is a small collection of fine art films that the faculty has collected through the years. We are continually adding to this collection. The films are a great instructional resource. 
Slide Collection 
The SRJC Art and Art History Department’s slide collection is available to all Art Department instructors as a teaching resource. It is an expansive image collection of approximately 40,000 slides, stored in the Visual Resources Library. The collection includes maps, didactics, and covers time periods from prehistoric to contemporary art.

Protocol for Borrowing Slides

The Image Resource Library's slide checkout system is based on color cards that are located above the slide drawers on the right side of the room. 

Full-time faculty are assigned personal color cards. Adjunct instructors use the light orange cards. 

When you find slides you would like to borrow:

Place your assigned color card in place of each slide you remove. 

Please return your slides promptly to the "return" box which is located to the right of room 710, above the center of the cabinets. 

The slide carousels are available for the length of time of your slide lecture. 

You may store the slide carousel with slides in the Image Resource Library if you are assembling them a few days in advance of your lecture. 

Please remember to return the lock rings with the carousel.

Protocol for Borrowing Films

The Film collection is located on the shelf above the slide cabinets, to the right as you enter Analy Hall, 710. 

When you find a film you would like to check out:

Fill out the Film sign-out sheet. The sign-out sheets are on a clip board hanging on the wall to the right of the films. 

When you return the film, please fill in the date you return the film on the sign-out sheet. 

Please return the films promptly so other instructors may use them. 

Some of these films are irreplaceable so we need to take good care of them.
