Records relating to Resource Centres

Resources Centres were hubs for the distribution of United Church produced material. The Resource Distribution Department and UCRD worked with Presbytery and Conference resource centres and outlets across Canada to deliver a comprehensive range of United Church and other recommended resources, bringing information, advice and resource access to church members. Under the umbrella of Resources Centres were Book Rooms: retail outlets overseen by the Conferences and Presbyteries. AVEL outlets were also under this umbrella offering free AV resources to Conferences. At some point some AVEL Outlets began to sell resources in order to counteract a lack of funding.

Subseries contains records relating to the various types of Resource Centres which included administrative groups like the Retail Distribution Branch Managers, the Resource Centre Administrative Task Group, the Book Room Branch Managers, and the Retail Operations Management Team. Files and subsequent arrangement reflect the type of resources centres including Presbytery Resource Centres, Book Rooms and AVEL outlets

Records related to Media Plan I

Media Plan I was established out of Mediamix through Bruce Marsh. Marsh prompted the Division to design a new approach to reach United Church members through TV spots in primetime programming with the purpose of informing United Church members about the message and work of the Church in order to foster financial involvement. In that process members of the general public would be informed and develop an appreciation of the Church and its projects to prompt a positive response. Media Plan I was the name given to the pilot educational campaigns in Barrie, Peterborough and Ottawa in early 1974. The report on this project indicated that TV spots reached a broad United Church audience with strong acceptance but the radio spots followed at a distance when reaching members. However while using guest personalities on radio reached fewer people those listening were impacted.

Subseries contains correspondence, reports, promotional material, financial records and press re Media Plan I 1973-1974.

Records of the Still Pictures Unit

Still pictures were originally the responsibility of the Audio-Visual Department within the Board of Information and Stewardship (created 1954). The programme was continued by the Division of Communication's Audio Visual Department prior to 1973 and then by the Department of Media Services/Media Resources Still Picture Unit. The Unit, housed at Berkeley Studios, was involved in the collection and production of photographs, slides, and film strips. Like most of the other units in Media Resources, Still Pictures existed largely to serve the needs of other Divisions as well as Conferences and Pastoral Charges, maintaining a library of materials. These filmstrips produced were created for educational purposes on behalf of departments and divisions of the Church, especially the Division of Mission in Canada, and the Division of World Outreach, and their antecedent bodies. They were also used for fund-raising awareness within the church.

Subseries consists of the following files: administrations, correspondence, photo collections, production lists, general production files, film strips and slides production files, presentation slides/slide set production files, caption material and filmstrip kits and production files.
