Changes in LTS Media Services
There have been some changes in how Lehigh faculty, staff, and students access Lehigh's Media Collections and Media-related equipment.
- All items from our Media Collection (Videocassettes and DVDs) will now be handled at the main Circulation Desk of EWFM.
- Media-related equipment (laptops, projectors, classroom microphones and remotes, portable PA systems, audio recorders, video camcorders, tripods, etc.) will now be handled at the Digital Media Studio.
The following list should help you find your way to the right place for the things you need.

LTS has made these changes in order to:
- provide a single service point--the Library Circulation Desk-- for circulation of all EWFM collections, including books, media, reserves;
- provide a single service point--the Digital Media Studio--for distribution of all media equipment;
- increase the Digital Media Studio operating hours to meet increased faculty and student demand;
- enhance our ability to support faculty in the production of course-related video and multimedia resources; and
- respond to changes to facility use caused by the increased adoption of streaming media and digital video in courses.
