Media Resource Centre

The Cardinal Gracias Media Resource Centre (CGMRC) has a special collection of books, periodicals and audio-visual material on Media and Social development issues. CGMRC serves a wide category of clientele both internally and externally. Its vast pool of literature and multimedia material in Media Communications persuades you to make the most of the facilities.

As communicators it is right that we not only familiarize ourselves with the various media at our disposal, but that we also keep abreast with the contemporary happenings that use the media.

History

History

The Cardinal Gracias Media Resource Centre (CGMRC), formerly the Media Resource Centre had its origin as the Media Library in 1971. Beginning with an admirable collection of 600 book titles specializing in the media, it grew to become the city's best media library with resources extending into audio visuals and documentations, warranting a change of name.

In 1991 its collection boasted of over 6000 book titles, 1000 audio visual titles and a documentation centre referred to by its users making it the city's best Media Resource Centre.

With the seed money from a generous donor, the library originally on the second floor has been expanded into its new "avatar": Cardinal Gracias Media Resource Centre. Situated on the ground floor of the XIC building this new space keeps records in print, audio-visuals and electronic forms and will service not just XIC students but college under-grad BMM students as well.
