Educational Media Services

The Educational Media Office can assist you in the design and production of graphics, images, slides, digital video, presentations, posters, publications and other course-related materials. Contact Marek Jacisin, Educational Media Coordinator, at or 617-587-5654.

In order to allow the completion of all the job requests in a timely manner, please submit your orders (slide production, scanning, image editing) one week in advance. Turnaround for poster printing is 24 hours. However, submitting your printing request at least one week prior to AAO, ARVO, and other major conferences will leave us sufficient time to fix any problems with your poster.

Digitized Slides

The Educational Media Office processes over 2,000 35mm slides a year using the latest technology. Collections of hundreds of slides spanning decades have been digitized, but the process is time consuming and requires planning. If you wish to scan more than 30 slides, please contact Educational Media Coordinator Marek Jacisin ahead of time at or 617-587-5654.
