Media Materials & Reserves – Facilities and Equipment

Our on-site viewing and listening center features 22 viewing and listening carrels. Two 4-person audio labs and two 25-person theaters are also available and may be scheduled for classroom use as long as the maximum occupancy is not exceeded. Our carrels are available for use on a first-come, first-served basis.

In our audio labs and theaters, library staff members are responsible for moving or reconfiguring equipment. If chairs are rearranged, please return them to their original arrangement before leaving, and report any problems to the service desk.
