Items on reserve for your course generally must be viewed in the Music and Media Library, but a certain number of reserve DVDs have second copies that you make take home to view. These are designated by the DVD-LEND item type. You can find the list of current reserves for your course in Reserves Direct.
For items not on reserve, at present over 8,000 DVDs that belong to the Lending Collection may be taken home to view. All non-Lending Collection DVDs, VHS tapes, 12-inch laserdiscs and other video formats must be used within the library.
The Music and Media Library has a number of viewing carrels that you may use to watch videos. We have equipment to view every video format that the library houses, as well as headphones for you to use within the Music and Media Library. For more information, see our Facilities page.
In order to check out a video for viewing, go to the Music and Media Library’s service desk and give the call number of the item you wish to view. In order to ensure equal access the reserve items, you may check out only one reserve video and no more that two total reserve items at one time.
