Media Center

Located on the 5th floor of the LLC building, the Media Center has a collection of 6000 videos, DVDs, laser disks, slides, audio tapes, CDs, CD ROMs and multimedia kits for use by faculty and students. We also have 15 viewing/listening stations, which can be used by one or two people, and three classrooms that can be used for group viewings, or can be reserved for classes.

The majority of our collections are catalogued in LIUCAT. For directions on using LIUCAT for media materials, please look here. Our opening hours are posted here. You may reach the Media Circulation Desk at (718) 246-6388.

Circulating Collection

Items in the circulating collection may be borrowed by any member of the faculty or the student body with a valid LIU I.D. and a library barcode (free at the Circulation Desk) Up to 3 titles may be borrowed at a time, for a period of 3 days. The circulation of multi-volume titles will be determined at the discretion of the Media Centre staff. Overdue fines are $3.00 per day, per video.

Media Reserve/Reference Collection

The Media Center provides students with a place to review materials used in class, and the Reserve/ Reference collection is meant to ensure that these important curriculum materials are equally available to all students at all times.

The items in this collection are to be used in the library, in the Media Center, for at most a few hours at a time. In order to ensure that these materials are available to the students and faculty who need them, it is necessary that the library strictly limit the out-of-library circulation of these items.

For a complete list of our Circulation Policies, please look here.

Our Collection Development policy is here, and a form to request the purchase of new materials is here.

If you are planning to show a video or other multimedia item in class, you must book the viewing equipment (VCR, monitor etc) from the Audio-Visual Department a week in advance. The AV Department is located on the 3rd floor of the Pratt building.† For more information call the AV dept at ext.#1348 or 1279.
