About the RMC
The Robertson Media Center offers a full array of analog and digital media collections and services, and provides expertise, equipment and resources for the use and development of media materials in instruction and research. The center features tinted windows, directed lighting, small-group viewing rooms, full-sized classrooms and carrels designed exclusively for video viewing and studying various forms of media. Staff at Clemons Library's 4th floor Information Desk can help with questions and checkouts. They're easily reached via the Hotline phone at the kiosk in the RMC lobby.
The Center is located on the third floor of Clemons Library.
Also located in the center is the Digital Media Lab, which offers a full range of digital media services, including slide and flatbed scanning, digital audio/video capture and editing, desktop publishing and technical instruction.
The Robertson Media Center opened in September 1999 and was made possible through a $1.2 million gift from Timothy B. Robertson, a 1977 University alumnus and member of the Board of Visitors, and his wife, Lisa Nelson Robertson, of Virginia Beach. Timothy Robertson is manager of Bay Shore Enterprises and former president and chief executive officer of International Family Entertainment. Their gift also endowed the Robertson Chair in Media Studies, which led to the development of the Media Studies program.
