Request a Guide Tailored to Your Course

Collaborate with a librarian to develop a Course Guide that will guide your students to specific resources for their research papers and class assignment(s).  Here's a link to current Course Guides: http://guides.lib.byu.edu/cat.php?cid=14099.  If you would like to request a course guide, contact your Subject Librarian or Reference Specialist in the library department that supports the subject of your course, and we'll be glad to develop a guide for your class.

Media Center

Would you like your students to view a film together? The Media Center on Level 4 houses a large collection of documentary, educational, foreign, and commercial entertainment DVDs and videos. Go to the Film Finder search to review what we have. The HBLL Media Center also has several viewing room options: 

Room 4824 is a state of the art HD Viewing Room that can be reserved by faculty, students and staff.  The room has 43 auditorium seats, an HD projector, sound surround and a Blu-ray player.  The room does not have a computer, but does have VGA or HDMI cables for your use.  Please note, if bringing a Mac laptop to hook to the system, the room is not equipped with different Mac adapters necessary to hook up your device.  Please bring your own adapter.

There are also three small viewing rooms, where 5-8 patrons can view videos in a small group setting.

An Open Viewing Room is available with 8 comfortable chairs, a large screen TV and wireless headphones that can be checked out at the Media Center desk.
