Media Resource Center
The Media Resource Center (MRC) is located on the second floor of Boatwright Memorial Library. It provides a variety of media materials for classroom presentations and circulation to students, faculty, and staff. The MRC materials collection includes over 10,000 video titles (videocassettes, laserdiscs, DVDs), 1,500 audiobooks, and 500 spoken arts audiocassettes and compact discs. Most of these materials may be checked out by patrons with a UR identification card.
Media booking is available to faculty wishing to schedule video items in advance for classroom use. Listening and viewing facilities are also available in the MRC for students completing out-of-class assignments.
The MRC purchases video recordings (video cassette, laserdisc, DVD) and other media formats to support the instructional needs of the faculty. Some video materials may be previewed to decide if purchasing is advisable and/or rented in lieu of purchasing.
The MRC also has a limited collection of recreational DVDs. All classrooms and auditoriums have some permanently installed media equipment.
The MRC is responsible for the cable television programming on UR channels 55, 56, 57, 58, 61, and 77. This includes the UR Movie Channel (channel 55) and the satellite teleconferencing channel (channel 61).
