The Media Center's collection, equipment and services are here to primarily provide support to the faculty and staff, though some items have been made available to students and members of the OhioLINK and Search Ohio communities. The collection is a compilation of over 9000 items. Search the library catalog
to find the Media Center holdings. The Media Center also holds an extensive slide collection including works of art, American history, and fashion design. Additionally the library subscribes to Artstor
a digital library of images. The Media Center staff or a reference librarian can help you locate the material you need for your class.
Media Reserve Program
This service allows faculty to place items on reserve for students to use at a later time. Items placed on reserve should be associated with a specific assignment, as only students in the course may use the material. We ask that you allow us at least 24 hours to process your material. Students will need to know the course name or number, instructor's name, and the title of the material when making a request. The material will need to be used at one of the Media Center viewing stations, or one of the other viewing stations available in the library. The material will be checked out for 4 hours, unless you request that students be permitted to use it for a longer time period. For questions please call 440-646-8182.
Media Hold Program
This service allows faculty to hold material for an upcoming class. Faculty may call the Media Center, 440-646-8182, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
with a list of videos for use on a specific day. The Media Center staff will be sure the material is pulled and ready on the requested pick-up date. If it is an item that is used often, the Media Center staff will work with all parties to be sure everyone is able to use the material at or around the requested time. We recommend faculty contact us at the beginning of the semester with a list of items and dates those items will be needed. This will allow us to provide the best service possible. Please contact the Media Center if you have any questions.
This service allows faculty to request equipment for upcoming classes. The Media Center has a number of pieces of equipment available for use in your courses or special events taking place on campus. Items include VHS/DVD players, monitors, camcorders, laptops, microphones, etc. Contact the Media Center at 440-646-8182 or email email@example.com
to discuss equipment needs with a staff member. Please request equipment at least one week in advance of your classor event, as we may not be able to accommodate last minute requests.
Media Center Collection
The Media Center collection has a primary purpose of supporting faculty with instruction. We have opened many items to the public which includes students and members of the OhioLINK community. These items may be checked out and used off campus. A member of the Media Center staff or a reference librarian can help you determine if items may be used outside the library. If an item is not permitted for use outside the library, students are welcome to use the material in the Media Center or at one of the various stations available in the library. If a student needs to use an item for a class presentation, and can not take it outside the library, the student should ask the instructor to contact the Media Center concerning the title.
