I'd agree that "audio-visual" carries baggage for those with a sense
of history, but I think each new crop of students would understand the term
in its simplest sense. (I've forgotten if this was asked by an academic
library.)
Our college has a Library Media Booking Desk, or Library Media in
common parlance. It handles bookings for videos and hardware.
The only problem is that we also have on campus a Media Productions
department, and there is the rare confusion.
