I am calling the media uploader with the following JS..

  var custom_uploader;
  $('#upload_image_button').click(function(e) {
      //If the uploader object has already been created, reopen the dialog
      if (custom_uploader) {
      //Extend the wp.media object
      custom_uploader = wp.media.frames.file_frame = wp.media({
          title: 'Choose Image',
          button: {
              text: 'Choose Image'
          multiple: false
      //When a file is selected, grab the URL and set it as the text field's value
      custom_uploader.on('select', function() {
          attachment = custom_uploader.state().get('selection').first().toJSON();
      //Open the uploader dialog

How can I modify this to hide the media library tab?
