Join us for the Open House at the new Barker Library Media Suite: Thursday, October 12, 4-6pm

Posted October 11th, 2006 by Remlee Green

The Barker Engineering Library has a newly renovated Media Suite. Celebrate its reopening at an OPEN HOUSE on Thursday, October 12th, 4pm to 6pm.

Refreshments will be available as well as drawings for movie tickets!

The Barker Engineering Library Media Suite has been redesigned and equipped to support access to digital media for the MIT Community. It’s equipped with a 48″ plasma screen, a DVD/VCR player, laptop and computer station connections, and is web and cable-accessible. It supports small group viewing (up to four viewers for copyright-protected media), or larger informal viewing for other resources.

Outside the suite are two individual viewing stations, also equipped to handle web-accessible, DVD, and VHS media. Together, these offer an updated and comfortable environment for viewing items from Barker’s collection of engineering-related DVD’s and videos, as well as the growing amount of web-accessible seminars, lectures, and other video material available through MIT World, OCW, and non-MIT sites.

The room can be reserved for groups of up to 15 people by calling the Barker Service Desk at x3-5661 or emailing barker-circ@mit.edu. See the Media Suite guide for more details.

We hope you can join us on the 12th!
