Media Screening Room Policies & Procedures


The Media Screening Room must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance by filling out the reservation request form. The room capacity is 30; larger groups should seek a different venue. 
Priority for use of the facility is given to course or curriculum-related media screening. If scheduling conflicts arise, priority will be given in the following order (1) faculty screening media for a course, (2) Libraries, (3) students screening media for a course, and (4) other campus needs outside of course activities. 
No fees or admission, including donations, may be collected for screenings in the Media Screening Room, nor can free screenings be given in conjunction with an event that charges admission. Screenings as part of a class are covered under Fair Use, but other public screenings require purchase of a public performance license in order to remain in compliance with federal copyright laws, specifically Federal Copyright Act, Title 17, Sections 101  and  110. See more information about Public Peformance Rights.
Groups using library space may rearrange furniture, but must return area to its original arrangement. Library personnel are not available to move furniture. It is highly recommended that the individual responsible for use of the room acquaint themselves with the technology prior to the screening. Library personnel are not available to provide on-demand technology support. 
Individuals may bring their food and drink in to the room. Groups (i.e. classes) planning to serve refreshments during room use must clean up after themselves. This includes wiping down table and desk tops and depositing trash in receptacles. Cleaning wipes and trash cans are available in the room. In the event of damage or cleaning costs beyond normal UW janitorial service, the Libraries reserve the right to charge a fee. UW Libraries should be notified in writing if food/drink is being planned for events open to the public. Per UW policy, University Catering should be given first right of refusal.
