Housed on the first floor of Lied Library, the Media Resources section collects media in all subject areas and in a variety of formats in support of the university curriculum. This collection includes such items as videocassettes, DVDs, audiocassettes, and streaming videos for use in the library and classroom. 

A media distribution system is available that enables the electronic delivery of selected media directly to specific desktop computers or viewing stations.
