Media Portal

This portal is intended to point primarily to Web sites and resources that provide information in traditional presentation formats: audio, images, and video.

For the purposes of this portal, the term "media" – the plural of "medium," which simply means "a format for presenting information" – is being used as an inclusive term to group traditional presentation formats together.

Please note: This portal is not comprehensive. All sites here have been selected based on the Library's site selection criteria.
