Media Resources Center

  Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday



The Media Resources Center service point in Moffitt Library will be closed for flood repairs, with limited, temporary services out of the Newspaper and Microforms Library in Doe Library.

Primary clientele (UCB students, faculty and staff) will need to pre-arrange access to media items by emailing avmccirc@library.berkeley.edu as the core MRC collection is being temporarily stored off-site. Media items will be made available for next-day pickup, when possible (some requests, including NRLF items, may take up to 5 business days).

The Media Resources Center (MRC) is the UC Berkeley Library's primary collection of materials in audio and visual formats, including DVDs, videocassettes, streamed audio and video, compact audio discs, and audiocassettes.

Please see our access and use guidelines before your visit to the Media Resources Center in Moffitt Library.

The MRC permanent collection comprises materials in a wide range of subject fields, with emphasis on titles with broad interdisciplinary interest and resources used in instruction on the UC Berkeley campus. The collection includes documentaries and feature films; dramatic performances; literary adaptations; speeches; lectures and events; and primary source recordings, such as historic TV commercials and newsreels. The MRC is home to one of the strongest collections of works by independent film and video makers in the US.
