We are located inside the library on the second floor of the Broadway Edison building. Please email or call ahead to make an appointment to ensure Media Specialist is available. You may also inquire at the Library Circulation Desk. To return equipment during Media Services hours, the easiest route is to take the stairs or elevator closest to the Harvard/Olive entrance (SW corner of BE building) to the second floor. Knock on the door or ring the bell and a staff member will greet you.
