Media Services Policies
Audiovisual collections include videotapes, audiotapes, CDs, and microforms. Audiovisual collections are available at all LSSC campus libraries, and AV material may be requested for use at any campus. Videotapes and audiotapes are cataloged and are listed in the LINCC catalog. Collections are limited to materials requested by faculty for classroom support.
Circulation of Audiovisual Materials
Full-time and adjunct faculty members may check out audiovisual materials for a period of two weeks. Audiovisual materials in the permanent collections do not circulate to students.
Faculty members may place audiovisual materials on reserve for student use at any campus library. The faculty member must submit a reserve request form, available at any campus library, 48 hours prior to making the reserve assignment. Reserve materials may be designated Library Use Only, or may be checked out for a period of time specified by the faculty member.
The libraries' collection development policy specifies that audiovisual materials be purchased at the request of the faculty. Limited budgets support only the narrow purpose of providing audiovisual materials for classroom support. No attempt is made to augment general collections with audiovisual selections.
Media Services is responsible for the following audiovisual equipment at all campuses: VCRs, TV monitors, CD players, DVD players, slide projectors, audiotape machines, and portable computer/projection equipment. Media staff provides delivery, set-up and return of all portable audiovisual or computer equipment on the Leesburg campus. Library staff provides delivery, set-up and return of all portable audiovisual equipment at the South Lake and Sumter campuses. Please do not move portable equipment from any location without informing the Media Specialist.
Requests for portable audiovisual or computer equipment must be made 48 hours in advance, via a Helpdesk Work Order. Faculty members are encouraged to create a Work Order to report any equipment malfunction as soon as possible. Malfunctioning equipment at the South Lake and Sumter campuses should be sent via courier to the Leesburg Library. Portable computer/projection equipment is maintained by the Media Specialist. PC Support maintains fixed computer equipment.
Media Services provides graphics production for signage and lamination for instructional or other college-related purposes. A Work Order must be submitted at least one week in advance of the project due date.
