Viewing & Listening

The centerpiece of the LMMC is a surround-sound, high-definition Blu-ray theater which seats 75. CSUSB faculty may use this space for class viewings of films.

Reserve the LMMC Theater

The library's conference rooms and event areas may be scheduled by CSUSB staff or faculty for CSUSB-related events. Non-CSUSB groups may be allowed to use the facilities for a nominal charge. CSUSB groups may schedule library conference rooms and event areas at no charge. However, if special set-up or labor by library staff is required, there will be a charge-back starting at $50.

Note: Professors and their classes take precedence in PL-5005 over other potential borrowers.

Also available in PL5005J, is the Audio-Technica Direct-Drive Professional USB (and Analog) Turntable. This professional stereo turntable features a high-torque direct-drive motor for quick start-ups and a USB output that connects directly to the Mac computer. Other features include: forward and reverse play capability; cast aluminum platter with slip mat and a start/stop button; three speeds 33/45/78; selectable high-accuracy quartz-controlled pitch lock and pitch change slider control with +/-10% or +/-20% adjustment ranges; and removable hinged dust cover. A selectable internal stereo phono pre-amplifier allows the turntable to plug directly to components with no dedicated turntable input. A USB cable and adapter cables are included along with Mac- and PC-compatible Audacity software to digitize selected tracks from LPs. Users must supply their own flash drives.
