Media Resources

Using the Media Resources Database

San Diego Mesa College has compiled and listed photo albums, videos, and articles written by outside organizations for your use. Media resources are also displayed at the end of related articles in the newsroom under the additional information section. 


The media resources be filtered by tag or using search. Use the filter to find all resources under a specific tag. Once a tag has been selected the list of tags will show only tags related to the current selection. Use search to find media resources by type, source, title or date. To search by month you must spell it completely out. By clicking the reset button it will clear all selected filters and search.

Sorting results

Media resources can be sorted by any column heading including date, type, and source. Simply click on the header sort by that column. By default the media resources list is sorted by date with the most recent addition first.

About the database

The media resources database is maintained by the Office of Communications.  For questions, comments or to submit resources to be included please contact Jennifer Nichols Kearns, Director of Communications.  All resources submitted will be reviewed and vetted prior to posting.
