About Media Centre
This media centre is designed to make the process of finding and using information about stories at Dalhousie University as easy as possible. We have broken down story elements into component parts so no matter where you are based, you can download visual or story elements as needed. We will also archive all photo, audio and video elements with easy access to this growing library.
Downloadable images and video:
On most story spotlights high-resolution images are available for download (300 dpi)
In some cases high-resolution broadcast-quality video is available for download (1080p Quicktime .mov)
We welcome comments and feedback on the centre to grow this resource to better suit your needs. Content is generated by members of the Dalhousie Media Team:
