The Harold B. Lee Library's Learning Resource Center—better known to students as the LRC—encourages BYU faculty members to post the videos they assign for their classes on the university's Campus Television.
As part of their curriculum, many faculty assign video programs that students can watch in one of the many carrels in the LRC anytime during business hours.
But there is a better alternative to scheduling programming in the LRC. Campus Television, a university-wide cable network, allows videos and other programming to be seen almost everywhere on campus, including classrooms, offices, dorms and even in the LRC, said Darin Hakes, digital multimedia specialist.
"With eight channels to show various programs on the cable network, the LRC is able to have more space available for other types of programming," he said. Assigned videos can be seen by students at anytime throughout the day, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
Hakes says airing course programming on Campus Television benefits students in other ways. "They can avoid long lines and filled carrels in the LRC, resist putting off a trip to the center and even avoid going to the library to watch a video altogether. Those alternatives are especially helpful during the last days and weeks of the semester when the LRC and library become particularly crowded," he said.
Other services, such as Temporary Reserve, where faculty may reserve a video to keep it from being checked out, are also available through the LRC.
