Media Classroom

 

The media classroom (a.k.a. large viewing room) is available for use by faculty to show films to their classes with a reservation. If you would like to schedule the room please email ems@linfield.edu with the date, start time, end time, and class you would like to use the room for. The room is popular, so booking as far in advance as you can is advised.

Students need to check with a staff member before using the room.

Media Classroom Viewing Policy

When showing movies, if you want to show a film or television show (documentary or entertainment), you need to meet one of the criteria for legal showings:
 
1) Private in-home viewings (applies to your home only, not library)
2) Viewing in class a film that is specific to the class topic (must be a class that is listed in the course catalogue of the college and the professor must be present)
3) Secure public viewing rights for a fee (which is what the college does for Saturday night films in Ice Auditorium)
 
Note- if the event is advertised (via flyers, email, phone recordings, etc.) in any way beyond the class, anyone (including professors) must secure copyright permissions before the film can be shown.
