Preparation of Material for the Copy Center 

  1. Materials submitted must comply with all copyright laws. If you have a copyright release, attach a copy of the release to the work order. Any project received without this information will be returned. All items used by “fair use” must have the copyright symbol and the source. If these items are missing the project must be returned for this information. 
  2. Provide clean originals. Every effort is made to reproduce quality copies from your originals. Please no 3-hole punched or stapled papers - these will not travel through our imaging devices. 
  3. Information must be clearly typed on white paper. Originals on color paper, particularly dark colors such as red, gold, blue, and green, may be difficult (and sometimes impossible) to reproduce. 
  4. Avoid colored ink on originals. Black ink reproduces the best. Colors of ink, such as a blue pen used for signature, may be difficult to pick-up. 
  5. Do not piece together originals. Loose edges can cause originals to mis-feed as they pass through the copier’s automatic document handler. “Make-ready” copies may be substituted for originals that are pieced together. 
  6. There must be a minimum of 3/8” margin at the top and bottom and 1/4” margin on each side of the page. Print that extends into this margin may not be picked up. Originals without this margin may need a slight reduction in order to fit the image on the paper. This may slow the process of your job. 
  7. Originals must be submitted, numbered, and unbound so that they can be properly arranged should the pages be out of order. Pages in books are numbered odd numbers on the right side (recto) and even numbers on the left side (verso). 
  8. All forms for specialty printing, stationery, envelopes and business cards must be completed and signed by department heads prior to submission for printing. These projects also require a complete budget number. 
  9. The material in your job must not contain any matter that is libelous, obscene, scandalous, or invades any person’s right to privacy or other personal rights. 

Work Orders

A work order not only authorizes the job to be billed to your department, but also provides us with important information about your wishes. We will need to know who is requesting the work, an appropriate telephone number, tracking number or budget codes, and date the finished product is needed. Convenient check boxes tell us your paper choice, if you want your copies to be two-sided or one-sided, collated, stapled, folded, cut, etc., and the number of finished pieces you need. Another area is provided for your description or title of the job. 

Library instruction should be tailored to fit the needs of your class, both in regards to your assignments and to their level of research skills. Instructional sessions can include basic bibliographic instruction, library tours and/or specialized database instruction. The library provides many services for faculty.

Faculty Request for Class Instruction

Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks for scheduling.  Provide the best email and phone number to reach you because we will call beforehand to discuss your library visit.

Process

Most divisions have specific frequently-used items of equipment conveniently located in their areas. Check with your division office for the location of this equipment. In some cases, equipment is permanently placed in some classrooms. But if you need equipment that is not available when you wish to use it, call the Media Center for assistance. This equipment will be placed in your classroom by the Media Center staff for the time requested. The staff work hard to transport equipment quickly, but because there is a high demand for some equipment and only ten minutes traveling time between classes, equipment may not always make it to your classroom as quickly as you do.

Equipment placed in your classroom by Media Center staff will be picked up by Media Center staff. Please help to keep FCC equipment on campus by properly securing your classroom upon leaving. If you are aware of equipment which needs repair or is not functioning correctly, please notify the Media Center ASAP. Tip: Rule of Thumb—When in doubt, call the Media Center, ext. 8206.

Instructor requests for media can be made through AudioVisual Support:

Ordering Audio-Visual Materials

To obtain AV materials for classroom use:

  • Fill out an a Request Form and submit it to the Faculty Video office, LRC mailbox, or email it to the Equipment Circulation office or
  • Call the AV Equipment Circulation Office. The Media Center staff will make all evening AV equipment setups to be used after 5:00 p.m. Call extension 8206 no later than 3:00 p.m. on the day of use.

Pickup of Audio-Visual Materials

Videos can be picked up at a variety of locations. You can pick them up from the library or from various division offices. Please indicate on the request for, or when you phone us, where you would like to pick up your video.

Return of Audio-Visual Materials

In order to meet commitments made to other instructors, AV material must be returned in a prompt manner. The return date is always indicated on the label. Although there are times you may feel that your need is the top priority, the truth is the rest of us feel the same way so avoid conflict with other teachers by respecting the return date which is always indicated on the label. Should you wish to keep material beyond that date, call the Library to see if an extension is possible. If no one else is in line to use it, your request will be honored.

Tip: In the past we had a slight problem with media disappearing from instructors’ boxes, only to learn later that teacher so-and-so showed that film or video in her class when it had been ordered by another instructor. Since the routing system has been expanded, with delivery to mail rooms in division offices, that problem has lessened greatly. However, you should be warned that there are still poachers out there who think nothing of robbing your students to give to their students. Talk to the instructor, your department chair, or your division dean if this occurs.

Audio-Visual Recommendations & Previews

Each year the Media Center purchases AV materials which become part of the Fresno City College Audio-Visual Library. Instructors are encouraged to preview and recommend for purchase those materials deemed most pertinent to curriculum.

Tip: Some publishers offer “free” AV materials to encourage instructors to select their texts. Often those materials are useful to other teachers. Making them available to other faculty by placing copies in the Library is appreciated.
