      Reserve Media

      If you are required to watch a specific DVD for a class and your instructor has requested it to be put aside, you will find it in the Reserves section of the Library. Viewing stations are available in this area, or you can check the film out for a limited time.

      Media Stations

      Listening and viewing stations are provided for all media types. DVDs and CDs may also be used on any computer workstation with headphones (available for check-out at the library front counter).

      Bookable Collaboration Rooms with Monitors

      All six of our bookable collaboration rooms are equipped with large-screen monitors which can be linked in to your laptop. No cords or remote necessary - the access panel is in the centre of the table or beneath the monitor, and the TV controls are on the right side of the unit. Just plug in, turn on, and go!

      1. Plug in your laptop to the HDMI (audio and visual) or RGB (visual) & mini-stereo (audio) cables.
      2. Turn on the monitor using the controls on the right side of the TV.
      3. Push INPUT until the input matches where you're plugged in (RGB or HDMI).
      4. Use the FN keys on your laptop to set the display to monitor or monitor & laptop.
