About HSL Media Design Services
Interested in incorporating multimedia or social media into your scholarly and professional pursuits? If you want to use video, images, audio or other media in an assignment, presentation, publication, poster, or web site, you can get help from staff at the Health Sciences Library.
Examples of projects that we can help with include:
- Developing online learning products such as interactive tutorials and web-based course materials
- Designing scholarly posters or flyers
- Creating digital audio/visual files for classroom, research, or clinical use
- Utilizing Web 2.0 tools such as blogs, wikis, Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feeds
- Finding existing materials to use in presentations
- Understanding copyright, fair use, and appropriate attribution or citation for the materials you use
Library staff can also consult with you if you wish to establish a “research day” poster presentation event for your program.
We are happy to work with individuals, or to teach workshops tailored to fit the needs of your group. Contact us through the Ask a Librarian box to the right to ask questions or schedule a consultation.
Prefer to learn online? See the How Do I.. tab for links to tutorials on media design. Additionally, HSL librarians have developed guides on particularly popular subjects. They can be found on the HSL Media Design Guides tab.
