Media Services Department Officially Opens

You may have noticed changes happening on the ground level of Paley Library. Over the past few months the Library has been busy converting what used to be the periodicals room into a new Media Services department. On Monday, February 16 the Media Services department officially became operational. We have now moved the entire media collection from its current location at the Tuttleman Circulation/Reserve desk to the new Media Services location on the ground floor of Paley Library.

In addition to making available all types of media for regular (one week) and reserve (4 hours) loans, it offers multiple viewing stations and even several viewing rooms for groups. That means students can now easily borrow and view the media assigned for their courses in one location. Students may borrow headphones as well. A DVD browsing area is being developed so students and faculty can see the latest videos added to the collection. Faculty can continue to place videos and DVDs on reserve for their courses using the same procedure. Students should be directed to the new Media Services department to obtain media placed on reserve.

For more information about the new Media Services department, please contact Sebastian Derry, Head of Media Services.
