Viewing Stations – Main Library

A reminder about viewing stations in the Main Library.
They have been re-designed to minimize loss and damage to viewing/listening equipment
Viewing carrels are located on the main floor – Main Library:
1 viewer per station only
1 pair of headphones per station – attached to each monitor
Volume is controlled by the monitor
All stations have multi-standard VCR and DVD players
There is only one Blu-ray player
There are four Laserdisc players

Bindery Slips

dvdA reminder to use the blue bindery slips when placing things on the P&P shelf – especially for media – and when it is not obvious what the damage/problem might be. If a borrower reports a problem with a DVD or video, please write the specific details of the problem on the slip.
If it is reserve media, add a yellow rush slip in addition to the blue slip, and alert the Reserve Office.
See this previous post for more info.
Thanks!

Browsing DVD’s

Browsing DVD’s
File discs immediately (or as soon as possible) after check-in, and place case on shelf.
Check that the alpha letter on the spine is attached securely. If not, please replace – we have lots of extra letters.

BEFORE you bring the Browsing DVD cases to the open shelves:
Open each case and check for a DVD before bringing them out to the shelves.
Do this with every case.
When shelving, check that DVD’s are in correct alphabetical order on the shelves.
Thanks!

Laser Disc Player Locations

You can search for classroom schedules on the College Master Location Schedule (go/mls). If you click on the room itself, you will see a list of classroom equipment and other features.
In addition to general questions about classroom viewing equipment, one question that has come up several times recently is the location of Laser Disc players on campus. LD is not a preferred format for viewing films, but it is sometimes the only format available in a specific title. Here is a list of classrooms with LD players that may be useful. Please verify by checking specific rooms on go/mls.

Films Scheduled for Screenings by Media Services

A reminder that films scheduled for screenings do not circulate prior to the screening on the day of the screening.
See below for more info:
Films that are scheduled to be screened by Media Services staff will be set aside by Circ staff – after cleaning, repairing (if needed) and verifying availability. On the day of a scheduled screening, films may not be borrowed prior to the screening. Students may borrow films after a screening, or on any day prior to the day of the scheduled screening, and regular reserve loan guidelines apply. This only applies to films that are listed in the daily Media Services screening schedule. Films are listed in the daily film screening schedule only when a faculty member requests that Media Services staff provide technical support to a class screening. If a faculty member has a film on reserve and will be screening the film themselves, Circ staff do not set aside the films.
