Students are increasingly incorporating digital images, video, and audio into assignments and presentation material, but production equipment has not been widely available to them on campus. Beginning this Fall, students may borrow Canon video and still cameras, and Sony audio recorders from Library Multimedia Services (MMS) in RT 301.
Students can check out these items from the Library just as they would a book — there is a 1-day loan period on this equipment. Students supply their own DV tapes and flash media storage cards, but both tapes and flash media storage cards are available for purchase in the Library vending machine if students don't have their own.
After using the new cameras and recorders to capture the information they need, students can work on their digital files at home or use the professional video, audio and image editing equipment and software in Multimedia Services to create polished materials for presentations and other assignments. Help with equipment and software is available in Multimedia Services as well.
Students may contact MMS for more information at (216) 687-9337. Faculty wishing to borrow similar equipment should contact IMSS Equipment Circulation at (216) 687-3846.

Hot off the Press!
July 31st is the 200th anniversary of print journalism in Cleveland, Ohio. While you won't find the Cleaveland Gazette and Commercial Register in newsstands today, it was the first newspaper printed in Cleveland, back in 1818. In celebration of this anniversary and in honor of Cleveland's journalistic tradition, Cleveland's First Newspaper Bicentennial Committee has put together a variety of events, exhibits, and digital productions to be attended, viewed, and enjoyed.
Friday March 9th - Saturday, April 21st, 2018
Generations of Clevelanders have looked to the spire of the Terminal Tower as a point of reference and as a beloved Cleveland icon. Friday, March 9th marks the opening of a new exhibition devoted to this landmark, titled "Cleveland's Endearing Symbol: 52 Stories of the Terminal Tower". Curated and designed by long-time Library staffers and originators of our Cleveland Memory Project Bill Barrow and Donna Stewart, the exhibit draws heavily on the collections at the Michael Schwartz Library and also includes material from many generous community partners. The exhibition is an affectionate and informative look at the role of the tower in the life of the city and includes hundreds of items: historical photos, artworks, film, media, ephemera, and kitsch. And a falcon, of course!
Join us for the opening reception and gallery conversation on Friday, March 9 at 4 pm, when Bill Barrow and Donna Stewart will highlight a few of the Tower's "52 stories".
Running from March 9th through April 21st at The Galleries at CSU at East 13th and Euclid Avenue, next to IdeaStream.
As visitors to the Michael Schwartz Library may have noticed lately, construction to expand the Adaptive Technology Lab on the first floor is well underway. Upon completion at the end of the month, the expanded lab will contain a wide variety of new hardware as well as facility improvements that will serve both students with disabilities and classes for demonstrations.
The new main lab will have four workstations and be large enough to accommodate Occupational Therapy lab classes. The current lab in RT103 will be repurposed as a quiet study room and dictation area and will house three workstations. The area north of that area will be converted into a room that will store assistive technologies and two Braille embossers.
Students needing to use the lab and the equipment during the construction should contact Jeff Dell, Assistive Technology Specialist, Disability Services at (216) 687-2141.
Beginning Sunday, March 24, 2013, the Michael Schwartz Library will have NEW hours.
The NEW hours will be as follows:
Late Night Study will be available until 3 a.m. starting the week of May 5, 2013.
