L&S Media Collection

The L&S Media Collection, located in 259 Van Hise Hall and the adjacent Van Hise Commons, provides an extensive video/audio library,  playback equipment, computers and drop-in study space.

Audiovisual materials for over 100 foreign languages and other Letters & Science courses are available in the Media Collection (see our Media Catalog for information on our collection.) This collection includes DVDs, videocassettes, CDs and cassettes. The catalog lists available holdings. Our DVD/video collection is also listed in MadCat, the UW-Madison campus library catalog.

Anyone with a valid UW-Madison ID is welcome to borrow DVDs from our 3-day circulating collection of 600+ feature films in 32 languages. Instructors may request course required video streaming. All borrowers, including faculty, must present a valid UW-Madison ID to use materials.



The LSS main office (279 Van Hise) is generally open from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. All LSS facilities (offices and labs) are closed Saturday and Sunday.

LSS labs and classrooms have limited availability during holidays and semester breaks.
