About the Media Services Center
The UNH Audio Visual Center was organized in the summer of 1946 when the film libraries previously operated by the UNH and State Department of Education were combined. In 1970, Photo Service was merged with the Audio Visual Center as a new Department of Media Service in Dimond Library.
Service units within the department included Photo Service (including graphics and cinematography), Campus Service (including equipment distribution and technical services). The Film Library (including acquisition and cataloging services), and Administration (including planning and consulting services). Publications included film catalogs, quarterly newsletters and occasional papers on a variety of subjects. The department was closed in 2014.
