Visual Resources Library

The BAC’s Visual Resources Library supports the curriculum by providing images focused on the built environment, films, and other relevant visual resources. Our digital resources are available to BAC faculty, staff, and students for research on campus and offsite. Please contact Sheri Rosenzweig if you have questions or would like assistance with locating images.

We have online image collections within Artstor, which is an extensive image resource for educational and scholarly use. Collection images include: architectural drawings (site plans, sections, elevations, floor plans, permit plans), maps, diagrams, landscape architecture and drawings, interior architecture, urban design, furniture, gardens, paintings, sculpture, and wallpaper. The content consists of both historical and contemporary digital images that may be downloaded for research.

We offer a broad selection of documentary, international, and iconic classic films online. They can be viewed from anywhere, anytime, by BAC faculty, staff, and students. Our streaming film database is provided by Kanopy. If a film is requested by a faculty member, and cannot be supplied by Kanopy, we will reach out to other vendors for either a streaming film or DVD.

DVDs can be accessed within the BAC Library by searching the Library Catalog. This collection includes documentaries that cannot be found online.

Streaming Films

The BAC Library now offers a broad selection of documentary films online, both contemporary and historical.

Films can be viewed from anywhere, anytime, by all BAC faculty, staff, and students via the Kanopy database. You will need to use your webID (your email login and corresponding password) when you are off-site to use either the database or a catalog link to an individual film.

Yes. You can create a clip or link in Kanopy to use in Moodle. If you are a faculty member and have a question about creating links or film clips in Moodle, please contact the online technology staff member that you are working with or email moodletraining@the-bac.edu for assistance.

No, there are no due dates or fines for streaming films since they can be seen by an unlimited number of people within the BAC community.

No, these films are to be used for research purposes; they cannot be posted to the internet. However, these films do come with public performance rights and clips or links to films can be posted within Moodle and shown within the college (as long as money or the public are not involved).

Yes. However, please note that the public cannot be invited to view these films. With regard to showing DVDs, please email sheri.rosenzweig@the-bac.edu to discuss whether a film has public performance rights.
