Media Collections Locations

The University of Melbourne has a large media collection which is distributed across a number of our libraries:

During the redevelopment of the Southbank Campus, DVDs from the Lenton Parr Library will remain on campus. CDs will be moved shortly to the Parkville Campus and be co-located with the Louise Hanson-Dyer collection in the ERC.

Where are Facilities for Playing Media?

CDs, DVDs and videos may be used in the Library, or borrowed for short loan periods of overnight, 2 days, 7 days, or 3 hour use within the library only. Check the catalogue for the loan period of individual titles. Remember, fines apply for late returns. To view DVDs and videos in the library, you will need to check each library for conditions and facilities. Both the Louise Hanson-Dyer and Lenton Parr libraries have record (LP) and CD players.
