The FITDIL database allows FIT academic departments to manage their own image collections and create slide shows for use in the classroom. These slide shows can also be printed out as flashcards by students for studying. FITDIL was created to encourage use of the internet as an instructional tool and to promote the sharing of visual resources by the FIT community. For more information about FITDIL visit FITDIL User Guide site.
The FITDIL office in Suite E409 also provides self-service imaging area for FITDIL users to digitize and submit materials to FITDIL. Service is open for walk-in inquiries, but we strongly recommend to make a reservation via email firstname.lastname@example.org to insure the equipment availability.
