Photography and Video
The Office of Communications is responsible for managing the University’s official electronic assets, such as photography and video.
The Communications Office maintains a database of photography and uses a tool called Extensis Portfolio to manage the images. Members of the campus community can access the web client to search for photos. For instructions on how to do so, please contact the Director of Creative Services.
Photos taken for and used in official Southwestern University publications belong to the University, with rights secured for their use from the photographer by contract.
In general, print reproduction by anyone other than the Communications Office requires that additional usage rights be secured. Web use is often OK, but a waiver must still be obtained prior to posting a photo for which you do not already have explicit rights.
The main responsibilities for video at Southwestern lie with Audiovisual Services. They provide audiovisual equipment for delivery and loan, support of all audiovisual equipment on campus, video production assistance and duplication, event support, Library facility management, and copyright assistance.
Videos for General Use
The Office of Communications has developed a short video presentation that highlighted the Southwestern Experience for our audiences attending major University events. This video is available for our on-campus constituents to show at (before, during or after) your own events. The presentation can be streamed directly from the Internet or downloaded in a variety of quality/formats. Please contact us if you’re interested in using this video.
