Mission Statement

The Visual Resources Center supports digital scholarship and pedagogy by fostering the creative application of technology in the service of research, teaching, and publishing in the arts and humanities at UC Berkeley.


The Visual Resources Center (VRC) is an academic support unit that meets the information and technology needs of faculty and students in the arts and humanities through access to its collections, digital project support, programming, outreach efforts, and media services.

The VRC team is a creative group of information professionals and technologists that connect faculty and students to emerging technologies and media resources relevant to scholarship, teaching, and publishing in the Digital Age.

Through project-based partnerships with UC Berkeley faculty and students, the VRC seeks to advance technological innovation in the Digital Humanities.
