BLB Media Room

In addition to extensive production and post-production capabilities in the Digital Media Lab (DML), the Library offers a limited Media Room (room 131) at the Biomedical Library Building (BLB).  Located in the BLB Commons, this room is equipped with a Windows computer configured with basic media, engineering (e.g., LabVIEW, Solidworks), and productivity software.

UC San Diego students, staff, and faculty can reserve the Media Room for three hours at a time.


  • All group study room policies, Food & Drink policy, and Use & Conduct policies apply to the Media Room.
  • Visiting scholars may arrange to use the room by having a UC San Diego faculty or staff member check out the key kit on their own Library account.
  • Return the key to the BLB Front Desk immediately after the reservation expires to avoid overdue charges of $10.00 per hour.
  • The Media Room key may not be taken out of the Library at any time. Checked-out room keys will not be held at the service desk.
  • Users are responsible for complying with the library copyright policy.
