Viewing Room & Equipment

The Film & Video Collection in the Morris Library is equipped with a 40-seat viewing room which may be scheduled for use by faculty and authorized teaching assistants in giving audiovisual presentations to University of Delaware classes on a first-come basis. The Viewing Room is available for instructional use only by classes using film, video, and other media. It is not available for scheduling as a substitute for a regularly-scheduled classroom or as a meeting room for clubs or other campus groups. To schedule the Viewing Room, call the Student Multimedia Design Center at 831-8832. For reservations seven days or more in advance, access the Media Scheduling Web Form which can be submitted online.

The Viewing Room has the capability to show videos in VHS (NTSC and PAL) and DVD (multi-region, standard definition, and Blu-ray). Projection equipment includes a rear-screen multimedia projector with Dolby surround sound. A computer with connection to the multimedia projector is available for use in accessing the Internet. If projection capabilities of a personal laptop are required, please notify staff prior to the screening and arrange a time to test compatibility.
