What’s New at the Media CenterAugust-19-2016
As students have been recharging and re-energizing over the summer in preparation for the fall semester, the Paul Meek Library’s Media Center has been working hard to acquire more equipment to meet the technological and entertainment needs of the campus and community. Topmost on the list is the new offering of universal wall chargers, USB multi-functional chargers and Apple-compatible chargers for same-day checkout and return. Additionally, the Center has purchased USB microphones, GoPros, more cameras and camcorders and a travel/desktop projector with a tabletop screen. These items are available for five-day checkout. For area educators and education students, all Ellison Dies have been relabeled and two new cutting machines have been purchased. Along with the machines, new space-friendly swivel chairs have been provided at the tables. There is no charge to use the Ellison Die cutting machines. Paper can be brought in or purchased for $.05 from Skyhawk Silver cards as the library is cashless. A much-anticipated 3D printer has been purchased and to cater to the large community of gamers on campus, a gaming area has been created complete with soft chairs and Xbox1, Xbox360 and PS4 consoles. As the semester progresses, more games will be added to the collection for check-out. Over the summer, the DVD collection grew to include more new films as well as many more television series. DVDs are available for three-day checkout. As a reminder, there is no charge to check out DVDs. A photo printer was also added to the list of items now available to patrons. Coming soon will be portable DVD/Blu-Ray players for checkout.
