In-Room Technology

All seminar rooms are equipped with: podium, Windows-equipped and networked computer (with built-in DVD player), VCR, projector, and audio equipment (tape and CD). However, please specify in advance which equipment will be needed so rooms can be set up properly for your use.

The following equipment has limited availability: one slide projector; two microphones (rooms 38 and 39 only); and one document camera/overhead projector (recommended for rooms 38 and 39 only). These may be requested for use, on a first-come, first-served basis. It is recommended that instructors wishing to use equipment arrive at least 15 minutes prior to classes to be instructed on equipment operation.

Notes

Classes may be relocated to other seminar rooms within the Beinecke Library in the event that a classroom is needed for a special function.

Students attending a class in a Beinecke seminar room are to follow standard reading room rules* – leaving coats and bags at the upstairs guard desk and bringing only paper and pencil into seminar rooms.

Items from Beinecke collections are to be handled only by the faculty member or library staff. Materials should not be passed around to students during class time. Students are welcome to use materials individually in the Reading Room.

Please review the Guidelines for using seminar rooms with your students in preparation for your visit.
