Group Viewing

Need a space where a group can watch a digital video or movie together? Check out our Library Spaces page for several possibilities. Groups of 4-8 may use a Group Study room, all of which are equipped with computers. Larger groups may reserve one of the Meeting Places.  VHS tapes may be viewed in room 114D. Viewings should be academically-related and must not exceed reasonable noise levels.

For individual viewing, check out a pair of headphones from the Technology Services Desk and grab any available computer.
