Getting started with your research!

Media Services

The Media & Digital Services at Smith Library was established to help High Point University students and faculty create and use multimedia materials in their class assignments, projects, and scholarly research.

What can you do here?

  • View and borrow most DVDs and videos from the instructional media, feature film, and media reserve collections. Get assistance on searching and finding videos, and request media items to be added to the collections.

  • Borrow digital cameras, camcorders, tripods, voice recorders, CD-players, DVD players, and VCRs.

  • Use multimedia computer lab resources and get assistance with the production of academic-related multimedia materials, including videos, podcasts, and graphics.

  • Scan documents and images, print posters, dry mount and laminate .

  • Book the lecture room for a presentation, lecture or movie.

  • Use the lab to view and listen to DVDs, videos, CDs, foreign language tapes and reserve materials.
