New Media room

Can you picture yourself and your friends using this to create presentations?

Picture this…pretty soon you can!

Demonstrations of the newly updated media rooms will be held in the library’s Media Center on Wednesday, August 14, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and on Friday, August 16, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Room 63 in the Media Center underwent upgrades and the addition of other amenities over the summer. It now contains a MediaScape system and an in-room camera/audio system for recording personal presentations.

Media group study room

Three additional rooms in the Media Center also have been outfitted as large-screen group study rooms. During the demonstrations, Michael Lapins, Media Center supervisor, will speak about some of the upcoming changes, such as new equipment loan rules and cables and adaptors for use by students with their mobile devices and Media Center equipment. Michael also will discuss how the Media Center is evolving to serve students’ technical needs.

In case you’ve never visited the Media Center, it’s in the basement of the Library Addition near the Laptop Lounge. While you’re there, take a look at the many movies and CDs you can checkout. The Media Center also loans Nooks and video cameras.
