INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA OFFICE (IMO)

INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA OFFICE

The Instructional Media Office is one of the two units of the ETS. It houses and circulates a collection of audio-visual materials and equipment carefully selected to meet the curricular needs of the academic community. It also produces materials for instructional purposes. Materials are arranged according to General Material Designation, Dewey Decimal Classification (IBED), and Library of Congress (CAS). Moreover, an Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) is available in the IMO.

It was also within these years that Mr. Proceso M. Llagas Jr. was taken in as full-time Technician.

1998-1999

The College building was finally completed.  The College IMC was housed at the 2nd floor for the safekeeping of the materials and equipment while projection services were held at R1 and R2 at the College Library. The IMC Head extended her supervision with the help of one IMC Aide.

1999-2000

The College IMC became fully operational with the hiring of Ms. Rosemarie C. Perlado as Media Assistant.  Both material and equipment acquisitions increased in number.

2000-2006

Mr. Serdamie P. Gumata was hired as assistant Technician assigned at the College IMC.  Viewing rooms were transferred to the 2nd floor at the AV Room, Balcruz Multi-Media Room and Fr Bellarmine Hall.
