Name change

The ICC is now known as Instructional Multimedia Services (IMS). This change of name was made to better reflect the IMS's role as McGill's central facility for the design, development and production of multimedia materials as well as the loaning, installation and maintenance of audiovisual equipment. IMS also provides television production, photography and graphic design services. The new name will be phased in, so for a while there will be an overlap as the IMS makes adjustments to signage, equipment labels, stationery and so forth. The URL will change to, but the previous URL,, will still operate for now. All phone numbers and building addresses remain the same.

On the move

Between now and January 2005, a number of offices and services are being relocated within the James (Administration) Building.

The Centre for Developing-Area Studies, which used to report to the vice-principal (research), now reports to the dean of the Faculty of Arts. The McGill Centre for Research and Teaching on Women, formerly reporting to the provost, now reports to the dean of the Faculty of Arts.
