New in Cleveland Memory! Each in Their Own Voice: African-American Artists in Cleveland, 1970-2005
The Michael Schwartz Library has partnered with the Cleveland State University History Department and Art Gallery to produce this online version of the exhibition, Each in Their Own Voice: African-American Artists in Cleveland, 1970-2005 as part of a new collection in Cleveland Memory.
The exhibition ran at the Art Gallery from January 23 to March 7, 2009 and featured work by 24 artists working in a wide range of media including film. Part of the preparation for the exhibition included interviews with each artist recorded as oral histories by the Cleveland State University History Department. Excerpts from these interviews have been made available along with the artists' work as well as portraits of most of the featured artists in this online representation of the original exhibition.
Listen and see for yourself what these talented artists have to say through their interviews and their art.

Equipment Loans to Students
Students are increasingly incorporating digital images, video, and audio into assignments and presentation material, but production equipment has not been widely available to them on campus. Beginning this Fall, students may borrow Canon video and still cameras, and Sony audio recorders from Library Multimedia Services (MMS) in RT 301.
Students can check out these items from the Library just as they would a book — there is a 1-day loan period on this equipment. Students supply their own DV tapes and flash media storage cards, but both tapes and flash media storage cards are available for purchase in the Library vending machine if students don't have their own.
After using the new cameras and recorders to capture the information they need, students can work on their digital files at home or use the professional video, audio and image editing equipment and software in Multimedia Services to create polished materials for presentations and other assignments. Help with equipment and software is available in Multimedia Services as well.
Students may contact MMS for more information at (216) 687-9337. Faculty wishing to borrow similar equipment should contact IMSS Equipment Circulation at (216) 687-3846.
