As part of its mandate, HSIMS (Health Sciences Information and Media Service, formerly called Medical Audio Visual Services [MAVS]) created many videocassettes for the Medical School after its formation and made them available as teaching aids, public awareness tools and medical learning resources for students, staff and faculty. They were written, produced, directed and designed by the staff of HSIMS and also involved students, staff and faculty from Memorial and affiliated teaching hospitals in the St. John’s area. They were retained in the HSIMS storage area in the Health Sciences Centre.
The videocassettes cover the many projects and subjects worked on by HSIMS during the years 1978-1991, including community activities, health education, outreach to youth, and many other topics dealing with medicine and the provision of health care in Newfoundland and Labrador.
