Audiovisual Center Renovation - by Karen Weber


Over the summer the Music Library’s Audiovisual Center was renovated into a state of the art facility. Its staff can now project video and audio in different formats out to 13 individual user carrels. Each user carrel contains a flat screen monitor on which movies may be viewed, a remote control panel and a mini-disc recorder. The latter gives users the ability to temporarily record selections from audio materials. For example, persons wanting to hear just a couple of selections from a long-playing record can record them, then play them back as many times as they like at their user carrel.

Funded by benefactor Judge W. B. Hamilton, this facility also contains a teaching area in which small groups or classes may congregate to view or listen to recordings together. A versatile recording station enables music library staff to duplicate in a variety of formats on-campus recitals in which requestors performed. Come take a look at this exciting facility, which is already a hit with TCU students and faculty alike.
