Media Project Help

In Person Help

At the Walter and Wilson SMART Learning Commons desk staff can help you with basic, quick questions. For harder, more in depth questions please make an appointment with a Media Consultant. If you know you have a video assignment that you will need help on please plan ahead. A few examples of previous student work we have supported can be viewed as case studies.

Software

Our staff has picked out the best ebooks available and searched the web for free supplementary tutorials. Please check out our software resources pages.

Equipment

We have a variety of equipment available to check out. You can get some guidance about what would be the best equipment for your project and find more information on how to use it from our staff or our website. Learn more about the cameras, tripods, audio recorders, and external hard drives we have available to loan by contacting us and we can give you advice on what would best work for your project.

If you are ready to request your equipment please fill out the correct form:


Video Collection

Watching Videos for Class at Walter Library

If you are coming to Walter Library to watch a video for class it has likely been put on reserve for your class. These videos are located at the basement level Reserves & Circulation Desk at Walter Library (across from the Wise Owl Cafe, map). There you can check out the video for a short-term loan (usually 3 hours) and watch it in the SMART Learning Commons. We have individual viewing stations (headphones can be checked out at any of the desks). If you want to watch as a group you can request our Media Viewing Room (located in the SMART Learning Commons).

Finding and Checking Out Videos

You can look up videos in the online catalog on any computer, including a public kiosk at the SMART Walter location, or you can ask staff for assistance. Online you can browse by genre. Additionally, most of our videos are on shelves that are browse-able in the Walter SMART Learning Commons. However, if the catalog says it is in the Desk Collection or Closed Stacks our staff will have to retrieve the item for you. All materials are available for 3 day loan (or classroom booking). You must have your U-Card to check out videos. Please take your selected items to the Reference/Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor of Walter Library for check out.
