Part of the Schools state of the art media monitoring facilities.
The Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies is a thoroughly modern centre for teaching and research. Every one of the many computers in the building is networked, with access to suites of software which range from the usual Office to Photoshop or Dreamweaver for creatives and SPSS for statisticians. Every student is given an email account and personal server space in which to archive work.
Most of the computer rooms are open access, available to any student at the School, and some are specially kitted out – CoolEditPro for the broadcasters, QuarkXPress on Apple Macs and InDesign on PCs for print journalists.
Students also have access to a wide range of ancillary equipment – recorders, digital cameras and digital video cameras can all be booked out for free. Professional quality video and sound equipment is available for Broadcast students.
In addition to all this there is the superb Library, with its ever-increasing number of books and journals, CD-Roms and access to professional-level online databases such as Nexis and Web of Science.
In October 2008 the school introduced a new Online Booking System, available for all JOMEC students and staff to book equipment, edit suites and production facilities.
The JOMEC Online Booking System is accessible anywhere via the internet and full instructions on how to use the new booking system are displayed on the site. Online Booking System
